Former Roots party presidential running mate Justina Wamae has urged youths not to participate in protests called by Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance.
According to Wamae, the issues they raise can be solved through both houses of parliament.
She insisted that their participation will be aiding in ruining a country that needs restoration.
"If you love your country remember that the genuine battle of the high cost of living, unemployment, high cost of fuel, poor public health and education, food insecurity, uniforms standardization, climate change can be won on the floor of Senate and National Assembly, not on the streets, don't take part in ruining a country that is in need of restoration," Wamae said on Monday.
She reminded the youth the leaders they are fighting for have always been privileged, unlike them.
Wamae added that these two leaders are also the reason Kenya has dwindling opportunities for young people.
"Just to remind you that those who are 36 years and below, majority (those without connection both vertical and horizontal) have never been formerly employed. Yet those in public authority, Kenya Kwanza and Azimio have always been privileged.
"One left school and was immediately attached to a sitting President and the other was born in a political dynasty. Their lack of struggle explains their ineptitude and indifference to the plight of the common mwananchi. They are the reason for the shrinking opportunities," she said.
The opposition is expected to hold mass protests across the city of Nairobi in their push to have President William Ruto accede to their demands.
Led by Raila Odinga, the Opposition insists the protests will be peaceful.
On Sunday, they urged their members not to wear clothes branded with affiliate political parties identities.
They claimed to have received intel of plans by unknown individuals who had printed the same and intended to cause harm and destroy other people's property.
