‘Wacha niwatetee’ – Karua urges police not to disrupt Azimio’s Monday protests
Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua has urged police officers not to disrupt the opposition's mass protests scheduled for Monday, March 20, 2023.
While addressing a political rally in Ruaka, Karua asked police officers to cooperate and let the leaders fight for their rights.
She claimed that the police were equally facing the same challenges as other Kenyans and should therefore allow them to protest peacefully without any disruptions.
"Wewe polisi nimekuambia uko na shida kama hawa wananchi wenzako, wacha nikutetee we polisi. We mtu wa security, wacha wakenya tujitetee tukiwa pamoja," she said.
Karua affirmed that the rally will be peaceful and there will be no destruction of property.
The vocal leader also cautioned protesters against vandalizing property and causing menace during the demonstrations.
"Maandamano yetu ya kikatiba itakua ya amani, haitakua na fujo, usiende ukatuletee fujo wewe, usipatiwe pesa uharibu maandamano, uumize mwenzako," she added.
She also alluded that she was willing to put her life on the line for the sake of the country and Kenyans at large.
Karua strongly stood her stance and stated that it was time the country was liberated from President William Ruto's 'illegitimate regime'.
While calling on Kenyans for solidarity, Karua also castigated the Kenya Kwanza administration for using the 'prayer' approach to solve the country's problems instead of working.
"Ujue maombi bila vitendo haiwezi ikawa na majibu, watu wetu tusimame pamoja tukomboe hii nchi. Mimi nimesema kama Martha Karua niko tayari kulipa gharama, sitasismama maovu ya kitawala," she added.
