Raila Odinga and his Azimio La Umoja battalion managed to attract a huge crowd for their public meeting on the way forward. In their address written on behalf of their followers, they have outline keys resolutions they want attended to with urgency.
The new administration with the least compassion, charity, and warmth in our nation’s history is taking shape. A lack of empathy, a coldness, and arrogance is what we are seeing. Therefore, the Ruto administration needs to be subjected to close scrutiny and pressure from Kenyans in order to be made to revert to the people’s agenda, which the regime has abandoned.
That the Ruto administration be put under pressure to put policies in place to lower the cost of basic goods and needs, particularly by bringing back subsidies for unga, fuel, school fees, and electricity starting in January 2023. If this is not done, Kenyans will be free to take whatever actions they see fit to lessen the burden on their shoulders.
The Ruto administration must reinstate the ministry’s reduction in secondary school and special needs school fees. Ruto needs to realize that while his circumstances may have improved, the economic position for most, if not all, of his parents has either become worse or stayed the same.
The Ruto administration must be forced to promptly reinstate and improve social safety subsidies like cash transfers to the elderly, Pesa Ya Wazee, and Linda Mama, which covered maternity costs for women who were struggling financially but had since been eliminated.
Because Gmo and seeds pose a serious threat to our health, the environment, and our seeds, Ruto must be pressured to permanently abandon any ideas and intentions to import them into Kenya. The executive branch must uphold the constitution’s guarantees of the rule of law, public participation, and the passage of pertinent legislation. We reiterate that our native seeds, which every mother with a jembe and a plot of land can go on to plant and replant season after season to receive a little food for the night, are the only reason Africans have not starved to extinction. We would be extinct if we had to wait for seeds to arrive every season from Europe and the Americas.
