"We have been demanding the opening of the 2022 Presidential election servers to determine who actually won the seat. Our people have been protesting the high cost of living, characterized by a sharp rise in the cost of food and other basic commodities," Nyong'o explained.
On Wednesday, March 29th, Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o suspended all Azimio Monday and Thursday protests within the county indefinitely.
According to the Anyang Nyong’o, the suspension of the demonstrations followed consultations with the Azimio la Umoja’s National leadership and County Executive Committee.
The Governor claimed in the statement that Kisumu residents who have protested the high cost of living and the contested General Election have spoken out strongly on it. He said that the indefinite suspension of the demonstrations in Kisumu will enable Raila supporters to join the ongoing unrest in Nairobi.
“However, after detailed consultations with the Azimio National leadership and the County Executive Committee (the cabinet), I wish to (announce) that all public demonstrations within Kisumu County have, from today, been suspended indefinitely so that we can join the demonstrations in Nairobi,” Nyong’o stated.
Anyang Nyong’o said that the people of Kisumu remain committed to the aspirations of Azimio LA Umoja and its campaign for a better Kenya. He detailed that Kisumu residents had staged anti-government protests over the high cost of living and the opening of the 2022 Presidential election servers.
He added that the protests were informed by the government’s decision to allegedly sideline the opposition in picking electoral body commissioners.
“We have been demanding the opening of the 2022 Presidential election servers to determine who actually won the seat. Our people have been protesting the high cost of living, characterized by a sharp rise in the cost of food and other basic commodities,” Nyong’o explained.
“Our people have also been protesting the undemocratic plans by the Kenya Kwanza regime to handpick a partisan Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to manage the 2027 General election contrary to what is provided for in the Constitution,” he insisted.
Several instances of mugging and vandalism have also been recorded in the course of the protests. Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Leader Raila Odinga has vowed more protests tomorrow even as President William Ruto warned that ‘no one is above the law.’
