Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Leader Raila Odinga has faulted President William Ruto for not coming out in bold to condemn the Shakahola massacre that has seen more than 100 bodies exhumed.
Odinga says that what has happened in Shakahola has never happened in the country since independence.
“What is happening in Kilifi has never happened in Kenya since independence and the government. And Mr.Ruto is silent about it. He has not come out to condemn since they are working together with this people. They usually claim that they are praying together for the rain even we have seen them together with those Pastor’s in statehouse,” he concluded.
Odinga jetted back in the country after one week visit in Dubai.
Odinga who arrived on Friday afternoon was triumphantly welcome by his followers from Jommo Kenyatta International Airport.
Demonstrations Were suspended for religious purposes
While in Kibera the former premier said that he shelved Mondays and Tuesday demonstration since he was requested by religious leaders to wait for Holly month of Ramadhan and Easter Holidays to be celebrated peacefully
“I did not stop demonstrations because of threats from the government but I stopped it because Bishop Philip Anyolo and Musilims leaders approached me and advised me to suspend demonstrations since Muslims were having hard times during Iftar while Christians were preparing for Easter holidays. I accepted since I am a man of God and I respect religious leaders,” Said Mr. Odinga.
Odinga told Azimio followers that on Tuesday they are going back to the street to proceed with their demonstrations that they had shelved for religious purposes.
“Tomorrow is on Saturday, followed by Sunday then Monday which will be Labour Day a public holiday for our workers. On Tuesday we are going to start from where we stopped. Servers must be opened, high cost of living must be addressed, Cherera four must be reinstated, the amount of money for county government that was reduced must stop buying Azimio MP’s should also stop,” he added.
Several Azimio leaders including Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper, Former Muranga governor Mwangi wa Iria, Jubilee secretary general Jeremiah Kioni, former Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya among others.
