Kenya government plans to silence Raila Odinga


Raila Odinga has been a consistent critic of the government, and the government’s allies have planned to muzzle him.

Senator Samson Cherargei has suggested that Odinga’s privileges be slashed for undermining the Kenya Kwanza regime.

He also recommended that Kenya suspend its annual African Union subscription until Raila Odinga’s 2 billion shillings usage is explained.

Odinga has given the government 14 days to reduce the cost of living, threatening mass action if they fail to do so.

Some political analysts believe that the government’s sanctions would only embolden Odinga, while others think that President Ruto is a shrewd and persuasive politician who could outmaneuver Odinga.

However, governance and political analyst Martin Andati thinks that Odinga has sent shivers in the Ruto administration, and the administration is panicking about his activities, hence resorting to sanctioning strategies.

Odinga has declared that the government has 11 days to act on his ultimatum on the cost of living.
