10 hilarious tweets by KOT about #maandamano

Today is D-Day, and opposition leader Raila Odinga said he would not back down, and the maandamano (demonstrations) will continue.

“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 with the likes of Kenneth Matiba. I have been fighting for democracy and was put in detention for eight years when some of them were still breastfeeding,” Mr Odinga said during his Kiambu County tour where he visited Ruaka – Kiambu- Kirigiti – Ruai – Githurai.

The maandamano was slated for March 20, 2023. It will be a political showdown between President William Ruto and Raila.

The demonstrations by Azimio will be agitating for opening the IEBC servers to determine the truth of the August 2022 election, lowering the cost of living, and halting the appointment of new IEBC commissioners, according to Raila.

Ruto has dismissed Odinga’s claims, stating that the Supreme Court has already ruled on the election and that the appointment process is ongoing as per the law. Ruto has also warned that any destruction of property during the protests will be dealt with severely.
