Azimio leader Raila Odinga says the demonstrations in Nairobi will resume after Ramadhan and will run parallel with the town hall meetings by the coalition across the country.
Speaking at the Ufungamano House in Nairobi on Thursday afternoon, Mr. Odinga accused the state of insincerity in the proposed dialogue, citing the inclusion of a Jubilee MP- an Azimio affiliate party, as part of govt delegation.
” Nothing stops dialogue out of parliament, the dialogue shall continue as we continue with the demonstrations, we are waiting for Ramadhan to come to an end and we shall announce the dates for the demos,” Raila told the gathering which had members of the civil society, faith-based organizations, human rights activists and small business owners at Ufungamano House.
”Immediately after the Ramadhan, I will announce when the countrywide mass actions will return,” Raila assured.
Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi while speaking at the same event warned that the bipartisan talks will not be allowed to proceed unless it’s opened up to include the Civil Society, Church, Students Unions, Workers Unions, and Youth Movement.
Azimio also underlined that the bipartisan talks will be held expeditiously, without undue delays, and completed within thirty days.
