Top Azimio la Umoja leaders are accusing President William Ruto of undermining the constitution and have vowed to mobilise Kenyans to reject efforts to undermine constitutional offices.

Led by National Assembly minority leader, Opiyo Wandayi and Siaya Governor James Orengo, the leaders who included Rangwe MP, Dr Lillian Gogo and Luanda’s Dick Oyugi said Kenyans were yet to see the true colours of the regime, adding that unless citizens stand firm, the country will revert back to the dark days of the single party era.

They were speaking at Asango Primary School in Ugunja Constituency during the official launch of Dr Ida Odinga Girls Secondary School cum election victory party for Sigomere ward Member of the County Assembly, Andrew Omwende.

Orengo said it was wrong for the Ruto-led government to vilify the four IEBC commissioners for performing their tasks and questioned the speed at which the president formed a tribunal to investigate them.

“The formation of the tribunal was too swift. Even in mature democracies like the USA, there are laws that are followed. The speed at which the tribunal was formed is worrying and unconstitutional," said Orengo.

Orengo further noted that the process appeared inclined to settle scores against the decision that the four commissioners made.

Wandayi on his part said that the Azimio coalition would go to Kamkunji grounds on December 7th to meet the public following suspension of the four commissioners.

"We have dealt with the worst tyrants like the KANU regime. We don't fear the government of Kenya Kwanza. That is the reason we are taking the matter to the court of public opinion," said Wandayi.

Rangwe Member of Parliament Dr Lillian Gogo said that the President was acting outside the faith of Christianity that he claims to practice.

She said that as a Christian, the president needs to understand that vengeance belongs to the Lord and that the action taken against the four commissioners was contrary to his professing faith.

Luanda legislator, Dick Oyugi said the Azimio la Umoja Coalition legislators will not take the matter lightly and called on other independent institutions to be careful with the trend that the government is taking.

Dr Ida Odinga, the chief guest at the occasion, called on leaders to prioritise the interest of the citizens, adding that the country could not afford selfish leaders.
