President William Ruto has warned the Azimio leader Raila Odinga over the planned demonstrations terming it as a way to intimidate his Kenya Kwanza regime.
Speaking during the funeral of Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria’s sister, Pauline Kuria, Ruto said the government will not be blackmailed into serving the interests of a few people, noting that the demonstrations will not work on intimidating his administration.
The Head of State made a statement shortly after the Azimio la Umoja kingpin Raila Odinga outlined fresh demands including an audit of the 2022 presidential results “forget about it and there will be no handshake” while referring to the planned political demonstrations.
“The identified tactics will not work on me, I urge you to forget about it my government is focused to uplift the economic agenda to all Kenyan people at large,” he stated.
Further, Kenya’s president advised Odinga to significantly focus on his role as an opposition leader and work to keep the government on track.
In a statement, Ruto said that demonstrations are a waste of time and urged the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya to stop what he termed as misleading tactics to disrupt government attention on critical national matters.
“I will not allow the demonstrations to destroy businesses and the economy, thus, there is no room for attending to Odinga’s outlined demands”, said President William Ruto.

“They are not doing these demonstrations for the benefit of Kenyans, but for their own good, their families, and their businesses. We will not face that direction,” the Head of State clarified.
