Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has said the opposition party will announce the next wave of protests on Friday, July 28.
Senator Sifuna who appeared on Citizen TV on Thursday, July 27 morning noted that Azimio Coalition only took a break from demonstrations to mourn with families of the victims of police brutality.
“We took a break to mourn with the families of victims of police brutality.” He said.
Moreover, the lawmaker opined that Azimio is not looking for an elite settlement, adding that President Ruto does not need to meet Raila Odinga.
According to Sifuna, the President only need to listen to the people.
Likewise, Sifuna applauded the catholic church saying they provided the way forward for the country.
“I want to thank the Catholic Church for being bold enough to speak truth to power, the catholic church had given a way out, you don’t have to talk to Raila” Sifuna noted.
The Nairobi Senator added that the catholic church spelled out two easy ways out of the country’s current predicament including repealing of the finance act and removing police from protests.
Furthermore, the lawmaker took a swipe at President William Ruto, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and Interior CS Kindiki Kithure, saying he prays they stay in power forever.
“Kindiki, Ruto, and Gachagua best pray to their God that they remain in power forever, because the Bible says you will reap what you sow.”
He recalled that the country has a tradition of not unleashing vengeance on the previous regime, noting that previous governments when elected moved forward to serve the people.
He claimed the current government has been serving vengeance to members of the previous regime implying retired president Uhuru’s family’s recent saga and that of former Interior CS Fred Matiang’i.
“I am not a prophet but when I close my eyes, I can already see that headline saying ex-CS Kindiki protest police visit to his house.” Sifuna stated.

“I can already see breaking news item, Ruto addressing the press at night outside his mother’s house because the police came there” He added.
Senator Sifuna said what goes around comes around hence, leaders should get rid of the vicious cycle of vengeance.
In addition, Sifuna said it is shameful for Kindiki to celebrate and chest thump on how he has been denying Kenyans their constitutional rights.
“Kindiki doesn’t strike me as somebody who has even slaughtered a chicken, so when he talks and says ‘kujeni’ he is not the one who will appear in the streets. He is hiding behind the police.” Sifuna said.
