Azimio La Umoja One Kenya leader Raila Odinga has announced days the opposition coalition will be holding weekly demonstrations.
The defiant Raila now says that they will be holding anti-government protests every Monday and Thursday from next week, until President Ruto's administration yields to their grievances.
Speaking to the press on Tuesday, March 21 at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation in Nairobi, Raila said that yesterday's protests were “immensely successful".
'Police caused chaos'
The opposition leader accused the police of causing chaos and violence, by turning peaceful protests across the country into violent confrontations with protesters.
"Many of the demonstrators got hurt and at least two innocent Kenyans were killed in cold blood by the police. We pass our sincere condolences to the families that lost their loved ones to police brutality. We will stand with those families in all ways including pursuing justice for their loved ones," said Raila.
He further accused the police of wanting to end his and the life of Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
"There was an attempt on the life of both Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka. Their cars were shot at but luckily they were unharmed.
"In this regard, we decry the silence of IPOA and KNHCR of Ruto's misuse of police. We are going for individual responsibility and culpability against officers who acted against the Constitution. So far we have a case to file individual charges against Mr. Adamson Bungei [Nairobi Regional Police Commander]. We will press these charges locally and internationally," Raila added.
