Jubilee Changes Tune on Raila’s Countrywide Protests

In a surprise move, Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga and the Jubilee Party have agreed to allow Raila to move forward with plans to stage nationwide protests across Kenya.

The announcement comes after weeks of negotiations and speculation between the two sides. In a statement released by the Jubilee Party, it was noted that the decision was reached in order to protect the rights of Kenyans to express themselves and their views, while respecting the rule of law.

The agreement will see Jubilee Party accommodate Raila as he leads several days of protests across the country. The protests will also be coordinated with support from the National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition.

The Jubilee Party statement noted: “In the spirit of promoting unity, nationhood and peaceful coexistence among Kenyans, the Jubilee Party has agreed to accommodate protests as a mechanism of national dialogue and engagement to reflect the popular will of Kenyans”.

Raila, who leads the National Super Alliance, had previously been denied permission to lead the protests, citing security concerns. However, the Jubilee Party has now granted Raila permission to proceed with the nationwide protests.

The Jubilee Party believes this move will help bring about greater unity among Kenyans and pave the way for more democratic engagement. It appears that the two parties have finally reached an agreement and now both sides must turn their attention to making sure that the nationwide protests are conducted peacefully.
