Opposition chief Raila Odinga has told off President William Ruto over requests to call off planned demonstrations.
Speaking on Saturday during a burial ceremony in Bondo, Siaya, Raila said he was no child that Ruto could scold him.
"Ruto doesn't have any authority to lecture me on the demonstrations. I'm not a child that he can scold me as he so wishes," he said.
He added that the President could not scare him.
Assuring that the reasons are not for self-gain, Raila said in the long run the protests will benefit Kenyans.
The ODM leader affirmed that the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition is still going to hold demonstrations on Monday and Thursday next week.
"The demos will benefit Kenyans in the long run. I'm asking every citizen to come out on Mondays and Thursdays to protest against the high cost of living and an oppressive regime," he said.
Raila said demonstrations will pave way for justice to prevail.
The leader reiterated that he won the August 9, 2022 polls, according to a whistleblower.
The dossier claimed that Raila won by 8.1 million votes (57.53 per cent) while Ruto got 5.9 votes (41.66 per cent).
"In the same election, Azimio had more governors, MPs and MCAs than the Kenya Kwanza Alliance. How could it be that Azimio had more elected leaders across the cadres, only to lose the presidential seat?" he posed.
Official results released by the IEBC showed that Ruto won with 7.1 million votes against Raila's 6.9 million.
