Muranga County Police Commander David Mathiu has canceled the Azimio Muranga County town hall meeting scheduled for tomorrow after receiving a call from above.
According to reports, the Kenya Kwanza government feels the ongoing town hall meetings are turning the people against their administration and have vowed to block the meetings in their strongholds.
Usawa Kwa Wote party leader Mwangi Wa Iria yesterday visited the Muranga Police Station to submit a notification letter to the station’s OCS regarding the town hall meeting to be attended by Azimio and Multi-Sectoral leaders on Thursday 20th April 2023.
“We are coming to engage the people… those who have been asking why Murang’a has not participated in the national debate calling for a reduction in the cost of living, finally we are here. We are going to meet our supporters who feel left out in the scheme of things… those who are not Kenya Kwanza Alliance members. Those who feel they are not part of the waiting for government dividends,” Wa Iria said yesterday in Muranga.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has since said the government is there to serve its shareholders first while others wait outside the kitchen.
“Gachagua said non-shareholders would only get leftovers. That is why we have organised a meeting for non-shareholders… Gachagua’s company was elected by 7 million people, similar to those who elected Mr Odinga. Another 8 million people did not vote and that means that non-shareholders are the majority,” he added.
