Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has somewhat predicted doom for Azimio leader Raila Odinga following his call for mass action saying it will mark his final political downfall.
The senior counsel holds that the call for en masse street protests is Raila's final resort in a futile attempt to push Ruto into a truce.
"Hon Raila's countrywide demonstrations are his last roll of the dice to extort something out of President William Ruto. This time, he will meet his waterloo and will spend his last miserable days in Saint Helena," Ahmednasir said.
Saint Helena is an island in the South Atlantic Ocean famously known as the place where French military commander and political leader Napoleon Bonaparte stayed in exile until his death.
Raila has declared a full-blown push-up against President William Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza regime which he terms illegitimate.
Ruto beat him at the August polls with 7.1 million votes to his 6.9 million but Raila rejected the results.
He has accused the government of failing to lower the cost of living and instituting measures aimed at guaranteeing electoral justice.
The Azimio leader has demanded that IEBC servers be opened to ascertain who won the August 9 presidential contest and has rejected the newly constitute IEBC selection panel as one containing Ruto's puppets.
On February 18, Raila gave the government a 14-day ultimatum to implement to meet the conditions among many others or face mass action.
On Thursday last week, he launched the Movement for Defence of Democracy (MDD) and has been rallying his supporters to pour on the streets on Monday, March 20 for the mass action.
"We also urge the victims of retrogressive policies of this illegitimate regime including workers, doctors, teachers, nurses, lecturers, students and the Business community to join this political revolution and movement for change. We are stronger together," he said.
Ruto on Wednesday said the government will not interfere with the protests but Raila must take responsibility for the security of Kenyans during the demos.
"We have no problem with you organising demonstrations but please it is your responsibility to work with the police to make sure that the rest of the citizens of Kenya, their lives are not disrupted, their property is not destroyed, and their business is not affected and they can go to work (then) you can carry out your demonstrations," Ruto said.
