Minority leader Opiyo Wandayi with other members of Azimio during a press briefing in Parliament

Azimio leader Raila Odinga has cancelled planned parallel Jamhuri Day celebrations at the Jacaranda grounds, Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi has said.

"The cancellation has been occasioned by the upcoming engagements that will keep the party's top leaders away in the run-up to Jamhuri Days and a few days after," Wandayi said.

Wandayi made the announcement on Thursday.

The Ugunja MP reiterated the opposition's commitment to keeping President William Ruto's administration in check to ensure it delivers on its promises to Kenyans.

"As Azimio, we promise that we shall continue to stand together and fight together until the Ruto regime returns to what really matters to the people," he noted.

Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga announced that he would hold parallel Jamhuri Day celebrations while at the Jacaranda Gardens in Embakasi, Nairobi.

Addressing a press conference, the opposition chief was to hold the anti-government push over the high cost of living, removal bid of four IEBC commissioners, alleged capture of the Judiciary by the Executive, Kenya Kwanza government’s unmet campaign promises, among other grievances.

“On the 12th of December, we are going to Jacaranda Gardens in Embakasi, not Kamukunji. We will be celebrating Jamhuri Day with Kenyan patriots and it is also going to be a very peaceful congregation. No protests, no picketing, although that is also guaranteed by the constitution of Kenya,” said Odinga.
