He's accompanied by other Azimio leaders including Martha Karua, Kalonzo Musyoka, Wycliffe Oparanya, Eugene Wamalwa and Edwin Sifuna among others

The consultative forum made 12 key resolutions to address the challenges facing Kenyans.

The leaders resolved that the William Ruto-led administration should be pressured to institute measures to reduce the cost of basic commodities, particularly by restoring subsidies of maize flour, fuel, school fees and electricity beginning January 2023, “failure to which Kenyans will be free to take such steps as they may deem fit to ease the burden of the yoke upon their shoulders”.

They said the government should also restore the school fees subsidy that saw the Education ministry reduce fees in all secondary schools and special needs schools.

They said that President Ruto should understand that “while his fortunes may have changed for the better”, for a majority of parents if not all, the economic situation has become worse or remained the same.
