• According to Junet, all Ruto needs to do is ensure the cost of living comes down, by reducing the cost of basic commodities.
• He went on to say if this is met, as well as their electoral reforms demands, the opposition will call off their weekly demonstrations.
Suna East MP on Tuesday at an Azimio La Umoja presser in parliament told Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to stop issuing threats at the opposition.
Suna East MP Junet Mohamed has said the opposition protests can easily be stopped if President William Ruto met their demands.
According to Junet, all Ruto needs to do is ensure the cost of living comes down by reducing the cost of basic commodities as well as heeding their electoral reforms demands.
"If you want these protests to end, this is a small matter. Announce that the price of Unga is Sh70. Announce that the IEBC will be recruited in a bipartisan manner. Announce that servers will be opened and that the price of fuel will come down. By tomorrow there will be no demonstrations," Junet said as he addressed the press on Tuesday.
The National Assembly minority whip added that there was no need for the police to be violent.
He said if the government fails to heed their demands, police should keep the teargas and water canons for better days as they won't stop the protests.
Junet insisted that it was the choice of the police to make demonstrations peaceful or violent.
"Let them be peaceful. Don't let them be violent, some of them yesterday ran out of teargas. Don't misuse water canons. Reserve those things for better days. Don't misuse them it is the choice of the police to make demonstrations either peaceful or violent," he added.
On Monday, the opposition held protests across the city.
Running battles and arrests were the order of the day as the Azimio brigade was denied access to the CBD.
Led by Raila Odinga, went around the city estates of Kamukunji, Eastleigh and Mathare where he addressed supporters amidst a face-off with the police.
The opposition claims that they are the rightful occupants of the office of the president and demands that President William Ruto resigns.
Initially, Raila had said that the protests would be peaceful and he would only march where Ruto is to hand him their demands.
