Opposition leader Raila Odinga has been calling his supporters to maandamano to compel the government of the day to lower the cost of living.
The weekly protests had dire consequences as tens of innocent Kenyans lost their lives while hundreds of others sustained injuries.
However, addressing Kenyans on Saturday, September 16, the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leader said he will not call his supporters to the streets anymore even as the cost of living continues to skyrocket.
“This time around, I will not call on anyone to go to the streets. No. When they go back they will do so on other grounds I don’t want to disclose at this moment,” Raila said.
Not wanting to pre-empt what step he will take, the former Prime Minister said he was waiting for the outcome of the ongoing bipartisan talks between Kenya Kwanza and Azimio.
“I don’t want to say much because I will be giving details too soon. Our people are currently meeting those from the government. For now, I will tell Kenyans to watch out for this space,” he added.
The ODM leader further disclosed that the opposition wing had collected more than 10 million signatures from Kenyans.
“We have collected more than 10 million signatures. That is enough,” Raila said.
Last month, the opposition leader said he would devise another strategy to avoid killings.
he promised that the new device would be adopted if the ongoing bipartisan talks with Kenya Kwanza side failed to yield results.
“We can tell our people to stay home, that is another way to express disaffection, next time we shall not tell people to come out, we will you to stay at home and stop anybody who is trying g to come out,” Raila said.
