The anti-President William Ruto protesters stormed a meeting that was being presided over by the Communication Authority of Kenya Ezra Chiloba at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Sports Complex.
The youths who were protesting over the current high cost of living forced their way to the catering section where they ate all the food belonging to the guests, and thereafter caused a commotion, forcing the attendees to flee.
These elicited sharp reactions from a section of Kenyan allied to the Kenya Kwanza government who accused Raila’s supporters of going contrary by not holding a peaceful demonstration as directed by their party leader.
However, on Wednesday, March 15, ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna defended the protestors who stormed the meeting and ate all the food belonging to guests.
Speaking on the floor of the house, Sifuna who doubles up as the Nairobi Senator informed all starving Kenyans to look for government meetings where food is being served and go eat their taxes in situ.
“In fact as the senator of Nairobi, I want to tell any Kenyan that having seen the increase of the budget of State House for buying tea and Mandazi, that tea and Mandazi is for Kenyans
“Wherever you meet a government agency holding a meeting, go there and eat that food. That food is your food,” Sifuna told Kenyans.
In an interview with the media on Thursday, March 16, Sifuna further that those who disrupted the meeting were not entirely supporters of the opposition leader Raila Odinga.
He said there is no way to substantiate that protesters who disrupted a meeting in Kisumu were Azimio supporters.
