Opposition chief Raila Odinga has made it clear that he will not endorse the final report of the Bipartisan Talks unless it places a substantial focus on addressing the escalating cost of living.
During a public address in Kajiado County on Sunday, October 22, the Azimio leader expressed his dissatisfaction with the slow progress of the ceasefire negotiations.
Raila further alleged insincerity on the part of the Kenya Kwanza side for failing to acknowledge all the issues presented by the opposition in the agenda.
Raila stated firmly, “No signing of the bipartisan committee report if it doesn’t have a provision for the reduction of the cost of living.”
“We are engaged in talks with the government, but the primary issue that must be addressed is the cost of living, which must be lowered,” the Azimio leader added.
While addressing the residents of Kitengela town, the opposition leader further insisted that the election servers should be opened to allow for a thorough examination of the results of the 2022 presidential election.
Raila also took aim at the government’s tax policies. He asserted that the Azimio coalition would not relent in holding the government accountable for its fiscal decisions.
