The Jubilee and KANU both members of Azimio la Umoja coalition have pulled out of the nationwide public rallies planned by the coalition’s leader Raila Odinga scheduled to kick off on Wednesday December 7.
Sources close to the two parties have said they will not take part in the planned demonstrations and urged their members to keep off.
ODM leader Raila Odinga has vowed to “bring down President Ruto’s system” in the countrywide demonstrations also referred to as public consultations. “On the 7th of December, at the historic Kamukunji grounds here in Nairobi, we will launch public consultations with the people of Kenya to brainstorm on the direction the country is taking,” Odinga said on Friday after meeting Azimio leaders from Nairobi County.
The demos stem from the ongoing probe of four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners by Parliament.
The four; Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyang’aya are being grilled after petitions were filed challenging their suitability to hold office, following their disowning of the August 9 Election presidential results.
