Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga has maintained that there will be no turning back on the planned demonstrations set for Monday and Thursday.
Speaking in Kisii County, Raila said the proposal to privatize State owned enterprises gives the opposition more reason to take to the streets to pressure the government to walk back on the said plans.
Addressing mourners at a funeral in Taracha Kisii Central Sub-County, Azimio One Kenya Party leader Raila Odinga said the Opposition will thwart attempts to sell state assets without the involvement of the public or parliament.
The Cabinet earlier this week approved the privatization bill that seeks to sideline parliament in the sale of state assets.
Although the bill is set to be considered by Parliament, Raila is pessimistic of MPs ability to shoot it down.
The new legislative proposal appears likely to fuel Azimio’s desire to continue staging anti-government protests every Monday and Thursday.
The Azimio brigade is set to hold a second round of street protests on Monday to pressure the government to lower the cost of living and stop the ongoing recruitment of IEBC Commissioners.
