ODM party secretary who doubles up as Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna on Wednesday said that the Azimio coalition has resolved to continue holding demos without notifying the police.
The senator, in an interview with a local radio station, on March 29 said police have been using the notices that they have been filing to counter their planned demos.
The city senator has stated that from next week the demonstrations will be happening any day anywhere in the capital without the knowledge of the security officers . According to Sifuna, the police service has weaponised the protests to target politicians who are not in good books with President William Ruto’s administration.
Sifuna has however come out to defend former President Uhuru Kenyatta distancing him from the claims of funding the Azimio demos as accused by some of The Kenya Kwanza MPs led by the Majority leader of parliament who is also the Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wah who have been terming him Azimio sole financier.
The first-time lawmaker has defended Azimio followers for their mass action saying picketing is allowed by the Constitution, and that police have been illegally barring the Azimio demos.
Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition has held protests on two consecutive Mondays, starting March 20, pushing for the lowering of the cost of living and access to IEBC’s electronic voter transmission data.
