MP Babu Owino showcases fighting skills ahead of Raila’s mass action

Babu Owino, a vocal member of Parliament representing Embakasi East, is preparing for the upcoming mass protests in Kenya.

He recently shared a video on his Twitter account, displaying his Taekwondo skills while training hard in the gym.

In his post, he stated that he is keeping fit and getting ready to take to the streets for the mass action, which is just seven days away.

“7 days to mass action. Training on,” he wrote.

Raila Odinga, the leader of Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition, called for mass action across the country in the next 14 days to protest against the high cost of living and the administration of President William Ruto.

Odinga made the declaration at the Azimio prayer rally held in Jeevanjee Gardens, Nairobi on February 22.

He stated that Kenyans have grown tired of the hide-and-seek games of the Kenya Kwanza administration concerning the cost of living. He demanded the restoration of subsidies and a reduction in the cost of basic commodities and taxes within 14 days, or else supporters of Azimio will be asked to participate in mass action.

Odinga also called for independent auditors to access the electoral servers and demanded inclusivity in the selection of six new Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners.

He demanded the restructuring of the IEBC operations and a bipartisan task force to be put in place. Odinga warned that if his demands were not heeded, Kenyans would be led to massive mass action across the country to take back their power and restore sanity.

“The ongoing process of reconstituting IEBC must stop immediately. A bipartisan task force must be put in place to restructure IEBC in a manner that ends its monolithic operations. If these demands are not heeded within 14 days, we shall lead Kenyans to massive mass action across the country to take their power back and restore sanity,” he said.
