Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga has declared the official commencement of the countrywide mass action.
This follows the expiry of the 14-day ultimatum issued to President Ruto’s administration to fulfill a raft of Azimio demands including the lowering of the cost of living.
"We have launched a campaign of defiance of peaceful picketing, peaceful protests, boycotts, strikes, disobedience, petitions, sit-ins and peaceful demonstrations. And it begins today and now," Odinga said during a media event at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation in Upper Hill, Nairobi, on Thursday.
The opposition coalition also announced the launch of the Movement for Defense of Democracy (MDD), an initiative to oppose the Kenya Kwanza administration.
Odinga, who was flanked by Azimio leaders led by Kalonzo Musyoka and Martha Karua, insisted that the Kenya Kwanza government is illegitimate, and called upon supporters to come out and take part in the protests.
He urged all workers, doctors, teachers, nurses, lecturers, students and the business community to join in the mass action to push the Ruto-led government out.
The ODM party leader said the mass action will culminate in a final meeting in Nairobi on March 20th, where all the supporters will converge in the capital for joint protests.
“On 20th March, we have a date with destiny in Nairobi, on that day our supporters from across the country will stage peaceful protests in Nairobi against this illegitimate regime. Save the date and let the action begin now,” he added.
On his part, Kalonzo said: “We want to make good our promise to Ruto and his illegitimate regime through a massive peaceful movement of defiance against a heartless, dangerous, and incompetent illegitimate Kenya kwanza government.”
The opposition will also be protesting against overtaxation, failure to open IEBC servers, attempt by President Ruto to single-handedly appoint the IEBC selection panel, and the victimization of the four IEBC commissioners who rejected the results of the last election.
Others are tribalism in state appointments, dividing the country along religious lines and creation of unconstitutional and unnecessary offices overburdening the taxpayers.
“We are telling Ruto and Gachagua that we are indeed the true shareholders of this country and we have no more patience for an illegitimate regime,” said Raila.
Can muuaji Raila & Co.explain why in the past all problems he pretends to solve through bloody protests are forgotten the moment he is allowed to join elite looters in the govt?Examples are savage Raila’s differences with expired muuaji Moi ended after his party,NDP was swallowed by KANU and he was appointed public works minister.Raila also grabbed(with Moi blessings) Molasses plant & land.The witch did the same with expired jambazi Senge/Cock Mwai after cannibalizing 1300 Kenyans in 07/08 PEV.He repeated after joining jambazi Muigai to EAT thereby “representing” his dump/blind followers.They looted up to the day Ruto was sworn in.How will Nyako IPhone 4G & Co.benefit if Raila join Ruto govt is she has never has never received any loot dividends cheque in the last 56 years when expired muuaji Kamau first bribed expired jambazi Oginga with SPECTER INTERNATIONAL in 1967?
Now that savage Raila has declared death and destruction,diasporans and other Kenyans should take the responsibility of guarding their elderly parents who live in/around Nairobi.It’s simple.Become a licensed gun holder and always surrender the weapon to Airport or Embakassi police station when leaving Kenya.I fail to understand why Raila and a few murderers,kina Wanjiru,Joho,Kabogo etc are above the law.I wish Kindiki,Haji,Koome,Amin can LICENSE TO KILL a few more Kenyans to stop Raila & Co from mass killings/murders.
Raila, you are the fake leader. Time is not on your side.
Young Kenyans are looking for a role model. They are also looking for a statesman and you are neither of those.
At your age you should be advising the younger generation.
Savage Raila can only advise how to kill a human being and BB&Q/prepare the MUZOGA for cannibalization.But I wish his youthful followers can learn with Raila’s don’t care altitude on Omondi’s arrest or killing of 350 young Jaluos in 2017.

Any, and everywhich way RAO slices it, this spells trouble. His minions have to sactifice a day, or so from work,school,church,or vacation while, the grand instigator will be doing what he does without missing a beat.
What is driving RAO is his ego.If he loves this country, he should take his loses accept defeat,and acknowledge that Dr. William Ruto is the president of Kenya. Handshake Version2 is overdue. Bury the hatchet make amends,keep quiet,and try again next time.That way you will look stately ,as opposed to what you look now; A trouble maker. A rebel with no cause.
Kibaki Toka didn't succeed until election time. Same tactics on politically suave and Young Ruto won't succeed. Rao prepare to hand over mantle to another Odinga
