Raila Shift Prayer Location to Jevanjee Gardens Amidst Battle Against Government


Raila, who has organized a series of statewide anti-Ruto protests in protest of what he claims is a stolen presidential election, has said that he would not participate in the electoral body’s reconstruction.

“Kenyans must stand strong against coercion and blackmail by those in authority,” he stated, adding that “people’s power must triumph at this time.”

“After we visit Kisii on Friday and Kisumu on Saturday, we will also pray for the IEBC that we have an IEBC that will protect the rights of our people,” Raila told the press.

“We must protect electoral fairness in our nation, as we have instructed our legislators, and we will continue to encourage Kenyans to wake up and defend their rights.”

Azimio la Umoja leaders have altered the location of their scheduled prayers for next week, even as they continue to fight President William Ruto’s government. The leaders had previously said that the service will be held in the Anniversary Towers, which seem to house the headquarters of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

“We will also pray for the IEBC in order to have a better IEBC to protect our people’s rights. That prayer will be performed in front of the IEBC premises (Anniversary Towers) “He said. However, later that evening, Raila declared that the prayers would be performed in the Jevanjee Gardens in the City.

“This country needs prayers. We’re planning to have a prayer gathering in Jevanjee… “We’ll speak about it further tomorrow (Thursday),” Raila told the journalists.

He was speaking when he paid a visit to former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i’s home shortly after a police raid.
