These are highlights from the Raila Odinga-led Protests on 20th of March 2023.
Business at the central business districts of Nairobi and Kisumu was paralysed for the better part of the day while several protesters and their political leaders got arrested.
The opposition leader has vowed to hold the protests every week until the issues of the high cost of food prices and ‘electoral justice’ is addressed. However, the Government has told off the opposition over their demands, warning of dire consequences
The protests coincide with opposition protests in at least four other African countries: Nigeria, Senegal, Tunisia and South Africa, marking a growing rebellion against sitting presidents. Coincidence or strategy?
