Evans Kidero, who used to be the governor of Nairobi, has said that the claims made by the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya alliance are ridiculous.

On the evening of January 29, 2019, Kidero gave an interview to a local TV channel, during which he said that there was no possibility the alliance could take over the State House five months after the winner of the presidential election was declared.

"If it had taken place during the last six months, the gathering at Jacaranda would have been fruitful and productive. Some of the requirements that they (Azimio) are placing on us are just unattainable.

According to Kidero, "asking President William Ruto to vacate State House is completely unrealistic because occupancy of State House is a legal process; you have to be elected and sworn in before you can move in."

Since then, Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio party, has asked President Ruto to step down in the 2022 elections and leave State House.

While at the same time criticizing the Head of State for the high levels of taxes in the nation, he encouraged President Ruto to face the fact that he would not be winning the presidential elections in August 2022.

"Accept the fact that you were beaten in the election, and vacate the State House so that Baba may move in." We are being completely honest when we say that we do not want a conflict, nor do we desire any threats.

"He said that Kenyans wanted a leader that they had the opportunity to vote for."

"We have our rights as Kenyans, and they cannot be taken away by a vulture," Raila added.

Raila told the people of Kenya to fight against the harsh tax policies that the Ruto government is putting in place. He said that these policies need to be approved by Parliament before they can be put into place.

He claimed that the planned privatization of national assets was done to benefit the president and his political allies.
