• Speaking at a church service in Nairobi on March 5, 2023, at Jesus Winner Ministry, Roysambu Constituency, the county boss said he will not allow businesses in Nairobi to be affected as a result of protests.
• Quoting from the Bible during a church service, the governor sustained that the time for politics and campaign is long gone following the August 2022 polls.
Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has said that he will not allow businesses in Nairobi to be affected as a result of protests.
The County boss was speaking at a church service in Nairobi on March 5, 2023, at Jesus Winner Ministry, Roysambu Constituency.
He was alongside the president and his deputy.
Quoting from the Bible during a church service, the governor sustained that the time for politics and campaign is long gone following the August 2022 polls.
Saying, “Politics helped us to vote and we got a winner. Kenyans want us (leaders) to work for them. We are asking our counterparts (in the opposition) since Nairobi houses all tribes and parties. I will not allow the property of a Nairobian or their businesses and lives to be at stake as a result of protests.”
Sakaja urged the opposition to engage in dialogue instead of confrontation.
“All of this cannot be accomplished through chest-thumping; even the Bible says, ‘Let us come together and reason,’ though this does not imply a handshake,” he said.
Sakaja’s remarks come amid rising political tensions in Kenya following the disputed election that saw Ruto defeat Odinga by a narrow edge.
The ODM communications director Philip Etale released a plan on Sunday that stated that the anti-Kenya Kwanza government demonstrations will begin after the deadline on Wednesday.
As a result, starting on Friday of next week, Raila is expected to lead the protest with the first rally taking place in Migori county in Raila’s native Nyanza.
The anti-Kenya Kwanza protests will then go on during the weekend in Narok County and go to Mombasa on Sunday. On Monday, the Azimio team will hold a rally in Kilifi.
