“When I talked to the President, he said they were in opposition during the handshake and they never went to the streets, I saw the light,” he added.
As such the governor noted that Kisii county residents will not go to the streets for demonstrations as there is enough food in the county.
“Sisi hatutavaa sufuria kichwani, tumewacha watu wakona njaa Nairobi wabebe,” he said.
Simba Arati further urged protestors to have peaceful demonstrations, adding that destruction of property is a stumbling block to the country’s development.
“I urge the protestors to participate in peaceful demos. So many countries are also demonstrating but peacefully. Don’t destroy the properties of others.” He added.
