Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua says Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition’s Monday April 3, 2023, anti-government protests will be their last.
Speaking in Kakamega, DP Gachagua underscored that it will not be business as usual thereafter as the government will fully assert its authority after stopping Mr. Odinga.
“I want to cushion those young men who have been taking advantage of the violence to steal property, mug people, loot property that Monday is their last day to do so,” he said.
Raila Odinga has since declared that the coalition’s Monday protests will be the “mother of all”.
Gachagua stated that the protests were nothing short of “post-election violence” and the government was out to tame it at all costs.
“The government will assert its authority in protecting lives and property and in upholding the rule of law. It cannot happen and it will not happen,” he said.
Mr. Gachagua also renewed his attacks on the media saying the fourth estate have joined the Azimio side hoping they (the media) will be in government once Raila succeeds in his protests.
”These media people, Prime Cabinet Secretary, do not worry about them. These are Azimio people. They are part of Azimio. So, you should not be bothered about them.
“They joined Azimio to run fake opinion polls. They wrote headline after headline that William Ruto stands no chance. They are still in denial. They are still hoping that Raila can push us to bring him into government and then they can join government too.”
