Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga has hinted at making things hard for President William Ruto and his government from now henceforth.
Raila on Monday assembled his allies and supporters at the Kamukunji Grounds in Nairobi, where he declared the start of resistance against Ruto.
He vowed to lead the said resistance, which he announced has kicked off today and seeks to bring to an end Ruto’s illegitimate regime and poor leadership.
The former Prime Minister has asked Kenyans to join him in the resistance, while accusing Ruto of imposing unhealthy policies on Kenyans.
“We ask our people to say no to the UDA regime. This regime and its unfortunate and unfair policies must be resisted and the resistance starts today,” he said, as is quoted by the Daily Nation.
Odinga also accused the Head of State of imposing himself on the people as their president, while maintaining that he was not legally elected.
He stressed on the need for Ruto to resign and take his government with him, since he lacks the mandate or the brains needed to lead the country.
“The Azimio coalition demands that the Kenya Kwanza government resigns as it has neither the mandate nor the ability to govern the country,” added the veteran politician and opposition leader.
Raila has since August last year refused to acknowledge Ruto’s presidency, terming him a beneficiary of rigging and vote manipulation.
This is after the two of them, and two others; George Wajackoyah and David Mwaure faced off in the race to succeed former President Uhuru Kenyatta, a race Ruto won and Raila appeared second in.
He made the remarks only a day after Ruto dismissed him, accusing him of trying to use manipulation to secure a portion of the government for himself.
