Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga has announced that the weekly anti-government demonstrations will resume after Ramadhan.
Speaking during the Azimio coalition town hall meeting held in Ufungamano House on Thursday, April 13, Raila claimed that the decision was made after a consultative meeting with other leaders allied to the coalition due to lack of seriousness from the government regarding proposed bipartisan talks.
The opposition leader asserted that the demonstrations will resume as the dialogue with the government continues, he also assured supporters that the coalition will announce dates for the maandamanos.
“Nothing stops dialogue out of parliament, the dialogue shall continue as we continue with the demonstrations, we are waiting for Ramadhan to come to an end and we shall announce the dates for the demos,” Raila stated.
“We have listened to you in these forum that we should continue with dialogue even as we stage demonstrations. We will continue with demonstrations and we will announce when the protest will be held after Ramadhan period,” he added.
