A statement has gone viral indicating the Azimio chief Rt. Hon. Raila Amollo Odinga has called off the ongoing mass protests.
Further, the statement said Odinga had postponed the mass protests after having consultations with religious leaders, international bodies and family members.
However, Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition party leaders denounced the viral letter saying it was published by their opponents to distract their supporters.
“It has been noted and agreed that the violence and vandalism experienced previously is not in line with what I want for this country. As a statesman and a patriot, my legacy is built on the foundation of democratic freedom, peace, love and unity,” statement read in part.
“It is in this period that I find it fit and favourable to call on all Kenyans to exercise peace as we fall back to restrategize on alternative measures that will pile pressure on the government to bring down the cost of living, reform and transform the key institutions that are charged with protecting and advancing our democracy in order to strengthen our nation,” part of the purported statement.
However, Azimio leadership has termed the letter fake as they promise to hold a mother of all mass protests within Nairobi.
“Ignore the fake news from the usual detractors, we are going to have a mega demonstration on Monday as earlier communicated,” Azimio said.
