Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition has announced that 'people's baraza' rallies will continue as planned.

In a statement, Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi said the coalition will hold a rally on Sunday, February 5 in Kibera's Kamukunji Grounds and another on February 10 in Mavoko, Machakos County.

"We wish to inform our supporters, the general public, and all Kenyans who feel for our country that our people's barazas are set to continue this week and the weeks that follow.

"We appeal to the public to attend these barazas and deliberate on the critical challenges facing our country.

"The cost of living is up and still rising but the government is doing nothing about it," Opiyo said.

The Minority Leader further said the coalition will not agree to President William Ruto's move to hire new Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners.

"The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is down and out, destroyed by Wafula Chebukati.

"But the government wants to populate it with more Wafula Chebukatis of its own choice. Kenyans will recall that our electoral body has taken this country to war in the past. We survived by a whisker.

"The IEBC, with the support of the UDA regime, is keen to take us to war again. We have to find a way of stopping them," he added.

Opiyo further accused the government of failing to initiate an audit on the conduct of the August 9 polls.

"It is also clear now that the 2022 election was shoddier and more opaque than previously believed. But the government is not keen on an audit.

"Come, let us reason together on our own future and that of our country before it is too late. Let’s meet in Kibra on 5th and in Mavoko on 10th," he stated.
