• Sifuna differed with the statement by Energy CS Davis Chirchir that nothing could be done to reduce the high cost of fuel in the country.
Orange Democratic Movement SG and Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has maintained protests will resume should the bipartisan talks fail.
Speaking on Citizen TV on Thursday, Sifuna said the tough economic times have pushed Kenyans to the edge adding that a solution should be sought to cushion them from untold hardships.
Sifuna differed with the statement by Energy CS Davis Chirchir that nothing could be done to reduce the high cost of fuel in the country.
“I am not a one-trick pony. I can do many things at the same time depending on the environment that I find myself in. Even if today we are unable to convince you in the bipartisan talks and we decide we are going back to the streets, I ride with my sufuria in my car,” Sifuna said.
“When we leave here, that sufuria that I wear on my head is still in my car because at any moment at very short notice I might be required to be in the streets and that is what my Constitution guarantees me.”
He further dismissed reports by the government that their coffers were empty when Kenya Kwanza took over.
This is even as the latest poll released by Tifa Research showed that 48 per cent of Kenyans are in strong support of the ongoing bipartisan talks between the Kenya Kwanza and Azimio la Umoja.
The latest poll by Tifa Research shows that 19 per cent strongly oppose the talks while 13 per cent neither in support nor oppose the talks.
When asked whether they think the reconciliation talks will succeed, 48 per cent said they are likely to succeed hence there will be no further opposition demonstrations and protests.
