Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi has accused Azimio leaders of being hell-bent on provoking President William Ruto in the pretext of agitating for the welfare of Kenyans.
Speaking on Sunday during an interdenominational church service in Nandi, Mudavadi said President William Ruto is a person who exercises restraint but should not be pushed to his limits.
“Patience can be elastic to a certain point. Provocation can also be managed to a certain point. Let the leaders of this country, particularly those in the Opposition differentiate between provocation and agitation,” he stated.
Mudavadi said that Ruto is not a vindictive or a vengeful leader as has been painted by a section of Opposition leaders.
“He was pushed to the limit but he exercised restraint. You have made us proud by exercising that patience and restraint. You are now receiving international recognition for it,” he said.
Mudavadi maintained that Monday is a working day and all civil servants will report to their work stations.
Raila on Thursday last week unlawfully declared March 20 a public holiday to allow Azimio supporters fully participate in the mass action.
“Monday is a working day. All government officials and I here shall be in offices to serve the people of Kenya,” Mudavadi said.
“Those who wish to protest, do not obstruct those who want to be on duty to develop and build the economy of the country.”
The Prime CS assured Kenyans that Ruto is not worried about the planned mass action on Monday.
“Ruto won the election against all adversaries and challenges. I want to assure Kenyans I'm not worried and as I stand here and you should not be worried and should not talk as if we are worried,” he said.
Mudavadi called on Kenyans not to live in fear because of the calls for mass action.
“The President has dealt with fear before and these people cannot hold us hostage today or in future,” he stated.
