The Western Kenya Times has established that several leaders of the Azimio coalition have been blocked from leaving their homes and joining other protesters on the streets.
Already, the streets in Nairobi and Kisumu are getting heated up with protesters gathering for the business of the day, with activities in the two cities disrupted.
It is reported that Narc leader and Odinga’s co-principal in the Azimio coalition is among leaders who state security is restricting from getting out.
Karua reportedly spent the night at her home and has been unable to get out because police have blocked the road.
It is, however, unclear as to the whereabouts of Raila Odinga or where he spent the night.
The leader, as a sign of hope to the protesters, tweeted that he was about to join them in the streets.
“Naona Kazi Imeanza tuko njiani nasi. #DateWithDestiny20thMarch,” he tweeted, attaching a video of leaders at KICC.
That comes as some leaders allied to his coalition have been arrested, including National Assembly Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi, Malindi MP Amina Myanzi, and Senate Minority Leader Stewart Madzayo.
