The Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition Party through its Executive Council Chairperson Wycliffe Oparanya announced a return of the anti-government protests on Tuesday, May 2nd after accusing the government of sabotaging the bipartisan talks.
Speaking on Monday, Mr. Oparanya said they have picked May 2nd to allow workers to celebrate Labour Day on Monday.
“We have set the date on a Tuesday to excuse workers who shall be celebrating Labour Day on Monday, May 1,” Mr. Oparanya told Nation.
The former governor noted the Kenya Kwanza side’s lack of seriousness in the bipartisan talks has prompted the return of the protests, which will run concurrently with the talks.
Azimio and Kenya Kwanza committee members last week failed to agree on the inclusion of some members in the two teams.
Mr. Odinga, the Azimio leader vowed to ensure the resumption of the street protests after Ramadan which ended last Friday.
