Azimio’s diehard supporter was left to take his own medicine, after which he expressed his disbelief.
According to Gaucho, Azimio ought to have been sent legal help as in the case of Maina Njenga. And things must change!
“Kitu kimeniuma zaidi na hii message inaendea kwa co-principals wa Azimio ya kwamba kwa nini Maina Njenga akipelekwa kwa DCI headquarters, karibu four principals walienda kumuona hata jana akipelekwa Nakuru kuna wale walienda akina Kioni lakini mimi nikishikwa ni kama mbwa ingine inapelekwa station?”Gaucho

Gaucho further added that there are 20 to 30 Bunge La Mwananchi youth still suffering at Kamiti prison and Industrial Area.
In addition, he said that should the bipartisan talks fail, he will not be available for another protest.
“Mimi nawaombea Mungu hii bipartisan talks ifaulu, isipofaulu then muite maandamano ya pili, mimi nitawatakia mazuri mbele kwa sababu lazima tuwe treated equal”Gaucho
Generally, the vocal grassroots politician has called for fair treatment and fulfilment of promises within the Azimio coalition.
