Azimio to March to State House With Sufurias
Ruaraka Member of Parliament TJ Kajwang on Wednesday, November 7, declared that Azimio supporters will march to State House carrying sufurias to protest the high cost of living that has seen prices of basic commodities skyrocket.
While addressing a rally at Kamukunji Grounds, Kajwang stated that Raila Odinga should allow them to head to State House.
“We will ask Raila Odinga for permission to march to State House and search for food with our sufurias to find what to eat,” he declared.
His sentiments were echoed by Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna who remarked that they will indeed actualize their plan of marching to State House.

“By end of this month, if the prices of maize flour will not have dropped, we will all march to State House to camp and eat there. All Kenyans will march there to demand maize and money for electricity bills,” he revealed.
In what was declared as resistance against President William Ruto’s government, Azimio legislators asked the public not to repay the hustler fund that was launched by Ruto on Wednesday, December 30.
Kilifi Senator Stewart Madzayo decried the high prices of unga while urging the public to default on payment of the hustler fund.
“I have heard that Kenyans are being urged to take the hustler fund, I am here to tell you to take the money and do not refund, that is your money, do not repay,” he remarked.
Odinga launched a resistance onslaught against President Ruto’s administration that is expected to run for 30 days before a final declaration is made.
The former Prime Minister held the Kamukunji rally in Kibra ahead of parallel Jamhuri day celebrations at Jacaranda grounds in Nairobi on December 12.
The planned demos stem from the ongoing probe of four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners by Parliament.
The Azimio party leader pledged to “bring down President Ruto’s system” in the public rallies which are set to kick off at the Kamukunji Grounds.
