Nakuru Traders Warn Azimio’s Anti-Government Protests


Nakuru, Kenya – On February 11, the business community in Nakuru issued a warning to the Azimio la Umoja Coalition regarding the city’s scheduled anti-government demonstrations. According to Chairman Stephen Muli, the businessmen will voluntarily join the President and his deputy in prayers of appreciation, instead of participating in the protests.

“We Don’t Want Protests in Nakuru”

In a public statement, Muli warned the coalition headed by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, saying, “We don’t want protests in Nakuru, and we are ready for you.” He argued that the demonstrations would only lead to disorder and anarchy, something the businessmen were not willing to accept.

No Disruptions Allowed

The community’s Vice Chairperson also stated that they would not permit any disruptions of business activities in the city. According to traders, residents in Nakuru are going on with their lives, leaving the campaigns and the 2022 elections behind them.

Urging Politicians to Help Ruto’s Administration

The business community also urged politicians who did not win in the 2022 general elections to help President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza administration fulfill its commitments. They believe that this would help the country move forward, instead of causing chaos through protests.

With this statement, the Nakuru business community is making it clear that they do not support the planned anti-government demonstrations and would rather work towards stability and progress in their city.
