Azimio launches web portal for supporters to upload videos, photos, audio during demos
Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya has launched a website portal for supporters to use in uploading photos, videos and audios during their demonstrations.
In a statement, National Assembly Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi said the portal will help in keeping supporters, and stakeholders informed.
"In the face of real threat to the free media, we wish to assure Kenyans that we have put in place a secure web-platform where members of the public are invited to post occurrences in form of photos, videos and audios during our weekly peaceful demonstrations.
"This material will be available for the world to see. This will enable us keep the public and all stakeholders informed of progress and real-time occurrences across the country," Opiyo said.
He added: "Anybody with a phone or a camera, can access and post annonimously or view the material remotely. All those that intend to cause mayhem will also be captured through a number of our IP-enabled spy cameras that will transmit to our cloud servers in real-time.
"A link to the portal is http://mddkenya.com."
Roots Party leader George Wajackoyah also today asked members of the public to carry their phones during Azimio la Umoja demonstrations tomorrow, Monday 27, 2023, and take pictures of police officers violating the law.
Speaking at Jesus Teaching Ministry in Embakasi where Azimio leaders attended a church service, Wajackoyah said he had information that some police officers will be carrying grenades.
"I am asking members of the public to use their phones tomorrow to take pictures of every police officer. Some of them will be carrying grenades.
"We want to preserve evidence. We will write to ICC. Bensouda (ICC Ex-prosecutor) was my classmate," he said.
Wajackoyah said instead of police officers "fighting" Azimio protesters, they should protect them because they are also "suffering" under President William Ruto’s regime.
"Police officers are underpaid, they leave in poor houses, and are loaded with fake guns.
"The guns you are carrying are not the standard firearms that can pass consumer protection act in the United States. Your firearms are from Taiwan," he said.
