Luo Council of Elders chairman Nyandiko Ongadi has appealed to Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga to drop his planned demonstrations.

Speaking to journalists on Sunday, December 4, Nyandiko said that demonstrations would after economic activities or result in injuries and loss of lives.

He argued that Odinga’s followers had grown weary of taking to the streets for many years, adding that demonstrations had been futile.

He is our son but we are tired of demonstrating on the streets. We have suffered huge losses and our children have died in demonstrations,” he said.

He asked members of the community to rally behind President William Ruto, thanking him for appointing leaders from the region to his administration.

Odinga announced that he would lead his followers in protesting against the indictment of 4 Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners on Wednesday, December 7, 2022.

President William Ruto gave instructions to Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki ahead of the planned nationwide protests.

He further ordered the deployment of adequate security to the opposition leader and his team during the protests.

The president who was speaking during an interdenominational service in Embu on Sunday, December 4, was quick to add that the officers deployed will not only provide security to Odinga and his team, but will also protect the property of Kenyans during the planned rallies and demos.
