While criticising Raila for asking for protests, Rigathi Gachagua, the deputy president, previously dared him to enable Winnie Odinga to join the demonstrations.

“Those who want our children to go to the streets have organized for their children to go to EALA in Arusha. If he wants street protests it is okay. But for them to take place, let your daughter, son come from Arusha and physically lead the demonstrations and the rest of the Kenyans can follow,” Gachagua told Raila.

Winnie Odinga has also blamed the communications authority for blocking their phones. some of the reasons why azimio is taking to the streets include:

1 Living Expenses

President Ruto is being chastised by the Azimio la Umoja coalition for eliminating subsidies on petrol, electricity, unga, and school fees, and for imposing ever-increasing taxes on basic goods, resulting in all-time high prices.

According to the coalition, the high cost of products is a direct result of Ruto's policy and decision-making choices, which he supports.

2 Discrimination in government hiring

According to Azimio, the Kenya Kwanza government has maintained a strategy that has resulted in Kenya becoming "a one-community nation where critical appointments to government positions go only to members of one ethnic group."
