Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja, has condemned The Azimio Monday Protests.
Speaking during the launch of the second Rapid Results Initiative on Tuesday March 21, 2023, he expressed disappointment saying that the daily revenue collections dropped drastically.
While finding fault with the Monday protests, Sakaja claimed that the country revenue had reduced to half of what the county collects on a daily basis.
He also suggested that there should be a dialogue on protests and that the culprits accountable for vandalism of public infrastructures should be arrested and prosecuted.
“We collected half of our daily revenue , 30.3 M, due to Azimio protests and we cannot sustain it should it be weekly. We need to have a dialogue on the protests and also those who were caught on camera uprooting infrastructure will be charged,” he stated.
“Those who took advantage and uprooted public infrastructure, I saw one carrying the Tom Mboya Street signage, those who were captured must be charged,” he added.
This comes after, the Azimio leader, Raila Odinga called for weekly demonstrations to exert pressure on President William Ruto’s government.
Raila insisted that the demonstrations will continue until their issues are addressed.
“The battle has started, there will be demonstrations every Monday and Thursdays until Kenyans get justice.”
