Azimio Party Leader Raila Odinga has  given President Ruto a deadline to revoke the controversial Finance Bill, 2023 or face consequences.

Speaking at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation headquarters, Raila said the President’s administration has up to Monday next week to listen to the voice of Kenyans on the Bill or “face their wrath.”

Raila has lashed out at President Ruto for what he termed as imposing undue taxes on already overburdened Kenyans, majority of whom live below a dollar a day.

He has accused the president of “re-introducing dictatorship in the country,” which he said will not go down well with the oppressed majority.

“They made a million promises to the people , none of those promises has been implemented and there is no indication that they will execute them,” he said.

Raila has said Kenyans ae tired of empty promises by the Kenya Kwanza government, coupled with the increasing high cost of living.

“Enough is Enough!We shall blow the trumpet , we will tell you what to do. That day is coming soon,”said Raila.

Raila Odinga was flanked by Westland’s Member of Parliament Tom Wanyonyi who donated toll of work worth Ksh.20M under the Nairobi Youth and Women Empowerment Program.
