- On Wednesday, Muslim leaders in the country urged Raila to suspend the protests as Ramadhan begins.
- Other Religious leaders also stated that President William Ruto and Raila Odinga should dialogue for peace in the country.
Opposition chief Raila Odinga has responded to a section of the clergy who have been urging him to suspend the planned demos.
While addressing the media on Thursday, Raila said the Azimio La Umoja team is only looking for the truth, and want their demands met.
"Our answer to the clergy is in the gospel, I want to quote John 8:32 - Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free," he said.
Raila insisted that the team will continue with the demos because they want the IEBC servers to be open, cost of living to be lowered and introduction of subsidies on fuel, electricity, education and food to lower the price of commodities in the country.
"The server should be opened for a forensics audit," he insisted.
On Wednesday, Muslim leaders in the country urged Raila to suspend the protests as Ramadhan begins.
The leaders said Raila should respect the holy month of Ramadhan.
"Tunatoa mwito kwa wale waandalizi wa maandamao waheshimu waislamu na mwezi huu kwani ni mwezi wao wa ibada," they stated.
This is loosely translated to: We are urging organisers of the demonstrations to respect Muslims as it's their month of prayers.
Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims chairman Coast region Muhdhar Khatarmy Sharif said the planned demos will disrupt the peace that is already in the country and affect the economy further.
"The solution must be found to fix this situation, instead of hurting people during the process," the leaders stated.
Other Religious leaders also stated that President William Ruto and Raila Odinga should dialogue for peace in the country.
The Kenya conference of catholic bishops (KCCB) said while leaders from the ruling administration should avoid chest-thumping, those in the opposing camp must agree to talks.
The bishops led by their chairperson Martin Kivuva said the blame games by two factions of leaders cannot help solve the myriad of problems facing Kenyans but only serve to worsen it.
"There cannot be a good reason to resort to the standoff and defiance of our leaders to the detriment of Kenyans," Kivuva said.
The clergy pointed out that they are willing to help in mediating to ensure a common ground is reached.
