Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has urged the members of the National Police Service to join the Monday, March 20, mass action.
In a tweet on Friday, Owino said one of the agendas of the day is to protest against police pay.
"One of the reasons why we will swing on Monday is for the police officers’ Salaries to be increased. So the police should join us. High cost of living must come down," he said.
Narc Kenya Martha Karua has been making the same call, noting that they are suffering the same fate as other Kenyans.
"A message to the police. There is no relief for the police or the Army officers. Your needs are Kenyans' needs. Let us unite and cleanse our country," she said while speaking during a public Baraza at Kilifi on Monday.
She also urged officers to let Kenyans carry on the picketing without disrupting, pledging that it will be peaceful.
"We want our police to stand aside and let Kenyans exercise their freedom and cleanse our country," she said.
Speaking at Ruiru in Kiambu County on Friday, Karua reiterated the invite.
"Our demonstrations will be in accordance with the law; they will be peaceful, there won't b violence, so don't cause disruptions," she said.
"Do not be "bought" to disrupt the protests and hurt your fellow Kenyans."
The opposition chief Raila Odinga cited various reasons for the protests including the high cost of living, unfulfilled promises, and election theft.
He said President William Ruto's administration is "illegitimate" and "does not care" about Kenyans' needs.
