Azimio leaders insist street demos are there to stay

Azimio La Umoja coalition leaders have raised their antennas over the purported overtures from the government in order to end street demos.

Led by their leaders, which included Nark-K leader Martha Karua, ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, ODM Deputy Party leader Wycliffe Oparanya, among others, the leaders insisted that street demos are there to stay, and no amount of arm twisting will deter them from fighting for the common Kenyan citizenry.

On the cards is a plan to institutionalise offices of the official opposition in both houses. Speculations have been rife that there are plans by the government side to offer the senior opposition leaders plum jobs in both the national assembly, and in the senate.

It is rumoured that Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka could be headed for the post in the national assembly, while Martha Karua would go for the same position but at the senate.

However, when speaking to the press, Mr Wycliffe Oparanya rubbished those reports, and instead stressed that the planned street demos will have to happen.
“There is no such thing. The demonstrations is about the high cost of living that is currently choking Kenyans. We don’t want positions,” said Mr Oparanya.
