Raila Odinga and Kithure Kindiki

Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio, was informed of a nefarious government scheme in relation to the much-publicized huge protest he had planned for Monday, March 20.

Speaking in Likoni, Mombasa County, Raila said that Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Kithure Kindiki was threatening him.

He also said that the police might try to stop his big protest, which was meant to put pressure on President William Ruto to cut costs of living.

Raila stated, "Kindiki, you will know who I am; the CS is threatening me."

Raila told his supporters that he would keep protesting when Ruto still didn't agree to his conditions.

"We offered the government an ultimatum and requested that they lower the cost of living, but they disregarded our request."

"Instead, they raised taxes without cutting the price of basic items," the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party head said.

Martha Karua, who backed Raila, cautioned Kindiki against using the police to thwart the large protest.

Karua threatened the Interior CS, saying, "You are the one who is going to pay if police attack anybody during the mass protest.

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka backed up the claims by criticizing the state's intentions to increase university tuition, which he said would make a tertiary education prohibitively expensive.

The Wiper Party leader said that starting in September 2023, students will have to pay Ksh48,000 rather than Ksh16,000 for tuition.

President William Ruto said that anybody was allowed to organize protests while addressing an interdenominational Thanksgiving ceremony at Kirubia Stadium in Chuka, Tharaka Nithi County, on Sunday, March 12.

He said, "I want to inform individuals staging protests that they are within their rights to do so, but that this is a nation controlled by law and we're unable to bow to their demands and violate the law.
