Raila Odinga back on the public barazas.

Azimio leader Raila Odinga returned to the streets with more demonstrations after smelling insincerity in bipartisan talks.

Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio, wants to organise more protests to put pressure on President William Ruto to take action on measures like lowering the cost of living.

This comes after he declared the restart of public barazas shortly after Ruto introduced his entourage for what Azimio saw as insincere bipartisan negotiations.

Raila declared the return of public interactions via public barazas and town hall gatherings in an announcement on Tuesday.

He said that the initially scheduled public event would take place in Nairobi on Thursday, April 13, 2023, and that a second one will take place on Sunday, April 16, on the Kamukunji grounds.

"We'll start a string of in-person interactions with the general public, including town hall conversations and open barazas. On Thursday, April 13, 2023, we will have the first town hall gathering in Nairobi. On Sunday, April 16, 2023, a people's baraza will be held on the Kamukunji grounds.

The ODM leader said that the purpose of the public appearances was to inform the populace of what would happen when he suspended protests.

"Town hall gatherings and public barazas have the intention of enabling the party to communicate to the people where we're going and the forthcoming course of proceedings following the cessation of demonstrations," he said.

Political observers have, however, described Raila's action as a tactic to persuade Ruto to accede to his requests.
