Bishop David Kodia of the Anglican Diocese of Bondo on Wednesday, March 15, accused President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza regime of exclusivity.
Addressing journalists, the man of the cloth faulted the Kenya Kwanza for favoring two communities during State appointments.
He said it was wrong to exclude other communities when all Kenyans including those who are allied to Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party are paying taxes.
“The demonstrations we are witnessing from Azimio actually is a way of protesting against what is happening….against inclusivity that we are witnessing in this country whereby two communities so to speak tend to control everything… all the appointments we have in this country whereas when it comes to taxation, all of us pay taxes including all those who did not vote for Kenya Kwanza,” he said.
Bishop Kodia further stated that the William Ruto-led administration has remained helpless even as the prices of basic food items continue to rise.
“It is unacceptable that the government of the day appears helpless even as the cost of basic commodities continues to rise exponentially,
“Commodities such as unga, petrol, cooking oil, and bread have all increased in price in recent months ranging from 20 percent to 40 percent,” he added.
The planned anti-government protests come days after the lapse of the 14-day ultimatum, which the ODM leader Raila Odinga had issued to President William Ruto to address the cost of living, open the 2022 presidential election servers and stop the process of appointing new members of the electoral agency, IEBC.
“Take note that on Monday, March 20, we have a date with destiny in Nairobi. We shall stage a massive procession in Nairobi for a legitimate and inclusive government,” Raila announced to supporters.
