Kenya Kwanza Supporters React to Raila Odinga’s MDD Youth Wing


🗣️Raila Odinga Unveils Movement for the Defense of Democracy (MDD)

On Sunday, January 5th, Raila Odinga unveiled a new youth wing for Azimio called the Movement for the Defense of Democracy (MDD) at Kamukunji Grounds in Kibra. During the rally, members of the movement were seen wearing military fatigues.

🤔MDD Launch Unsettles Kenya Kwanza Supporters

The launch of the MDD youth wing has caused concern among supporters of Kenya Kwanza, who are questioning Raila’s motivations.

🔥Warning from Senator Aaron Cheruiyot

Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, leading the Kenya Kwanza troops, issued a warning to the MDD youth wing, reminding them of the fate of a similar ODM youth wing in 2002. He also accused President William Ruto of bailing out the 2007 youth wingers and alleged a repeat of the same in 2018 when Raila entered into a handshake with former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

🗣️Advice from Miguna Miguna

Vocal lawyer and Kenya Kwanza supporter, Miguna Miguna, advised the President to ignore the opposition leaders and let Raila hold as many rallies as he wants, as long as his supporters do not cause any destruction or havoc.

💥Call for Action from Kenya Kwanza Supporters

Kenya Kwanza supporter, Shadrack Kemei, called for the government to move quickly and arrest some members of the MDD youth wing. Mugambi Amathi echoed this sentiment and urged the Head of State to use police force to deal with the MDD. John Huss questioned why the MDD members were still roaming free after appearing on national television wearing military gear and called for relevant security agencies to summon them.

💪Fight for Democracy

The MDD youth wing, led by former and current university leaders, revealed during the launch that they were fighting for the return of democracy in Kenya. Fikirini Jacobs, a former Pwani University student leader, remarked that most Kenyans had lost hope in the electoral system due to the lack of democracy in the country.

🚨Illegal Impersonation

According to the National Police Act, it is illegal for any person to imitate a disciplined officer by wearing a uniform that can be interpreted as that of an officer. A person may only wear a police uniform for artistic purposes with the approval of the Inspector-General.
