Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga calls off anti-government demonstrations, this comes only a few hours after President William Ruto urged the former prime minister to halt the demonstrations and resolve his issues through legal means.
Speaking to the country from Capital Hill, the former prime minister welcomed Dr. Ruto’s statement as “important” and a constructive step forward.
“We acknowledge Mr Ruto’s olive branch for a dialogue on key issues raised by Azimio La Umoja. To us, this is a positive development,” Raila said.
“I believe that Kenya is today facing its worst crisis in decades out of which we could recover or go the way of other failed states.”
“We want to strengthen our democracy and we want to ensure that how Kenyans vote is what the commission announce,” he added.
“We are ready to engage and we will engage without any form of corruption and this process should start as early as tomorrow.”
