CS Moses Kuria speaks on detaining Raila Odinga.

The state will no longer accept rallies organised by Raila Odinga, the leader of the coalition party Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya, according to Moses Kuria, the Cabinet Secretary for Investments, Trade, and Industry.

In an interview with the BBC, Kuria claimed that the leaders can handle political opponents in the same manner that neighbouring presidents Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and Paul Kagame of Rwanda handle their own governments.

"We conducted elections that were completely open to the public; we took it all the way to the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court proclaimed itself..."

"Every time he runs for office, it means that we will work with him in the same way that Paul Kagame deals with his opponents and in the same way that Museveni dealt with his opponents."

 "There is just no other option," Kuria said.

Raila was accused of holding past governments hostage to get his way by Kuria, who maintained that the Kenya Kwanza administration would not deal with Raila.

"He has been having too much success for far too long. Kibaki is no longer alive; he has passed on and is no longer a problem for him. Uhuru was the one who gave it to him."

"Please take it from me since he will not have it again. "There's not going to be any benefit for democracy," Kuria said. "There's not going to be any."

The current situation in Kenya is in no way related to the high expense of living in the country.

"Since our enemies know we are trying to take over their land, this is nothing more than economic terrorism. But we are going to take the necessary actions."

Some people say that Uganda's President Museveni has used harsh methods to silence his opponents, such as arresting and torturing them.

Some of his opponents have been driven to such lengths that they have been compelled to abandon the nation for their own safety.

A former member of parliament for Kyadondo named Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, better known by his stage name as Bobi Wine, as well as a former military officer named Warren Kizza Besigye Kifefe and a human rights campaigner named Stella Nyanzi have all been the targets of President Museveni's anger.

As of January 2023, President Yoweri Museveni has reigned over Uganda for a total of 37 years.
