The Azimio la Umoja supporters may need to prepare to go back to the streets for the bi-weekly demonstrations. According to the ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, president William Ruto degraded their concerns, calling for the continuation of the demonstrations. 

Sifuna said that the Kenya Kwanza party kept ignoring their demands regardless of their efforts. 

"If we are not talking about the price of unga, then count me out," Sifuna. He also added that the decision of whether or on they will be going back to the streets lies with the votes that will be cast by supporters.

On the same note, Raila appeared on a Baraza that was hostedby civil society groups at the Ufungamano House in Nairobi. The meeting aimed at discussing "issues affecting the nation." 

Among those who arrived were Ex Murang`a Governor Mwangi wa Iria, Raila Odinga, Eugene Wamalwa and Martha Karua among others. Raila`s motive for the meeting was to do away with government-controlled prliament

The group was against the selection of Eldas MP Adan Keynan who belongs to the Jubilee party, a partner of the Azimio la Umoja party. 

Raila says the Kenya Kwanza party operates in " rubber stamps" and that everything is "okay with them. He has said he will only engage in talks that will benefit the people.
