Police block roads as Azimio mass action deadline lapses

On March 8, police blocked sections of State House Road, State House Avenue, Processional Way and Dennis Pritt Road.

Boda boda operators were also not allowed to access the roads as early as 6am.

In a prayer meeting held at the Jeevanje Gardens in Nairobi two weeks ago, Raila demanded that the government lowers the cost of living or face mass action.

Other Azimio demands include the halting of the process to hire IEBC commissioners.

But President Ruto has dismissed the threats, saying the country is led by the rule of the law.

He has also said that he will not be cowed by the opposition.
