Gachagua: Adequate arrangements have been made to protect Kenyans on Monday
Rigathi Gachagua, the Deputy President has assured Kenyans that adequate security measures have been made to protect Kenyans and their properties against planned Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition protests.
Mr Gachagua while speaking during an alumni event at his former school, Kianyaga Boys’ High School, said Azimio leader Raila Odinga lost fairly during the 2022 General elections, and there was no need to picket.
“I want to assure the people of Kenya that adequate arrangements have been made in accordance with the laws of Kenya to protect life and property on Monday. And we ask the people of Kenya to go about their businesses unhindered,” Gachagua said.
Gachagua accused Raila and the Azimio of planning to sabotage the economy through picketing, which would lead to the destruction of property.
“These people who are sponsoring this mzee (Raila Odinga) should stop living in denial. This mzee lost and there is nothing they can do. It is a script for the last four elections… This time round it cannot work,” Gachagua said.
This comes days after Raila alleged that he was under pressure to call off the demonstrations slated for Monday, March 20, 2023. Raila, speaking on Thursday in Nakuru, maintained that he will not be intimidated to call off the countrywide protests.
