Among the objectives of the protest as outlined by Odinga is reclaiming their “stolen victory”.
"Let us all converge in the CBD and begin our grand March to State House to reclaim our stolen victory,” Raila said.
His statement came on a day that also saw police declare the protests that are planned for Monday in Nairobi illegal.
Nairobi Police Commander Adamson Bungei made it clear that the protests set for Monday, March 20, 2023, remain illegal.
In a statement released on Sunday, March 19, 2023, Bungei stated that the protests did not meet the threshold under Public Order Act.
"The public order act of 2012 is very clear, if a protest is not within the framework of that order then it is illegal," Bungei confirmed, adding that two groups that had requested to hold protest in the city were not given permits.
