Azimio To Resume Protests


Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition has announced that the anti-government protests will resume on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.

In a statement to the newsrooms by Azimio executive council chairman Wycliffe Oparanya on Monday, the resumption was prompted by the Kenya Kwanza coalition’s failure to commit to holding constructive bipartisan talks.

“Our protests will resume on Tuesday, May 2. We have set the date on a Tuesday to excuse workers who shall be celebrating Labour Day on Monday, May 1,” said Oparanya.

Oparanya further noted that Kenya Kwanza government has shown no will to address their demands among them high cost of living.

“It is therefore a mockery of the envisaged dialogue to have him at the negotiation table for Kenya Kwanza. Kenya Kwanza has also shown no commitment to lowering the cost of basic goods including unga, fuel, electricity, and school fees,” the statement further said.

The second round of bi-partisan talks between the government and the opposition is expected today, Tuesday, April 25.

The protests, according to Oparanya, will be limited to Nairobi.

The nationwide protests by the opposition had been halted in early April after an appeal from President William Ruto, who agreed to talks and to reform the election commission, which is among demands by the opposition.
