Winnie Odinga, the daughter of Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance leader Raila Odinga, claims to have been hit by a cyberattack.
The firebrand East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Member of Parliament (MP) in a tweet on Monday 20, 2023, claimed that the destructive cyberattack had rendered all of her electronics useless.
Winnie said she would take to the streets to protest following the alleged hacking.
"All electronics hacked! All completely unusable, all dead! Meet me in the streets! #RutoMustGo," Winnie Odinga tweeted.
Winnie's sentiments were echoed by Azimio which said phone lines of its leaders and team members had been disabled in attempts to sabotage the Monday protests.
"We call upon @CA_Kenya to up step and be a regulator and not a partner in crime; especially one @ezraCHILOB. The Phone lines of our leaders and team members are being unfairly and wrongfully disabled in attempts to sabotage the protests," Azimio TV tweeted.
Raila, speaking on Thursday, March 16, 2023, in Nakuru, maintained that he would not be intimidated to call off the countrywide protests.
The Azimio leader said that he was under pressure to call off the demonstrations slated for Monday, March 20, 2023.
“We cannot be intimidated by William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua. I want to tell them that I fought for the second liberation in this country. The two cannot understand what I have gone through. I was arrested, charged in court and went to prison in 1983 but was discharged for lack of evidence. I have been fighting for democracy and was put in detention for eight years when some of them were still breastfeeding,” Raila said.
“The lion (Moi) was dreaded but we uprooted its teeth. I am ready and prepared to pay the ultimate price while fighting for the liberation of Kenya,” he added.
Raila has listed six reasons for the demos slated for Monday, including President Ruto refusal to allow the audit of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) servers and the high cost of living.
Other reasons include nepotism in the current administration, lack of consultations in the reconstitution of IEBC, broken promises and an illegitimate government.
