VIDEO: Raila forms yet another movement “to defend democracy”
Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga on Thursday launched the Movement for Defense of Democracy (MDD), an initiative that is against the current regime.
Speaking at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation in Upper Hill, Nairobi, Odinga also declared the official start of countrywide mass action after the lapse of ultimatum issued to the Kenya Kwanza government.
This follows Wednesday’s lapse of the 14-day ultimatum the Azimio leader had issued to President William Ruto and his government to expedite the opening of the 2022 presidential election servers and address the high cost of living.
“We have launched a campaign of defiance of peaceful picketing, peaceful protests, boycotts, strikes, disobedience, petitions, sit-ins and peaceful demonstrations. And it begins today and now,” Mr Odinga said.
He also promised a massive rally planned in Nairobi on March 20.
“After we have done what we have to do, wherever we are in every corner of the country, we shall finally converge in
Nairobi. Take note that on March 20, 2023, we have a date with destiny in Nairobi,” he added.
