Ruto warns Raila Odinga and his Azimio coalition members over plans to hold demonstrations.

President William Ruto has warned the Azimio la Umoja coalition over returning to the streets to protest against the Finance Bill 2023. 

Ruto promised to “be very hard” on the Raila Odinga-led camp in a speech on Monday adding that the government has plans to reduce the cost of living

“These people who are trying to test me, I will be very hard on them. Kenya does not belong to a few people, it is for all of us. We have plans in place to reduce the cost of living,” said Ruto. 

President Ruto told the opposition that staging protests cannot solve the high cost of living.

“No matter how many friends from the other side put pans on their heads, the cost of food cannot come down, that is the plain truth,” the president said.

He added “For now, what remains is how we will work to take this country forward. We want everyone’s business to thrive.”

Addressing the media on Thursday last week Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua announced the meeting will take place at the Kamukunji Grounds on Tuesday, June 27.

“Whenever as a people we have come together we have always found a solution even to our worst problems, this time will be no different. We believe that in the end, it is the people’s voices that will prevail.
