No Explanation for Withdrawal of Police Officers

Reason for the withdrawal of the GSU officers remain  a mystery but unconfirmed reports suggest that the government is unhappy with Former President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mama Ngina Kenyatta’s son for allegedly  funding the opposition protests that are taking place from today Wednesday to Friday this week.

These protests, organized by the Azimio la Umoja coalition, aim to address the government’s alleged failure to combat the rising cost of living.

Addressing Journalists yesterday, Martha Karua, the leader of the Narc Kenya party, announced that the protests would commence at midday and continue late into the evening.

“Although Kenya is not at war, all police and other security officers have been recalled from leave to deal with demonstrators. Despite the intimidation, Azimio confirms the protests planned from Wednesday to Friday are on, as earlier announced, “she said.

Government’s hand

This is not the first time the Kenyatta family has found itself at logger heads with government, in March this year a group of youth raided the Kenyatta family owned Northlands farm along eastern bypass stole sheep and cut down trees. This happened during anti government demos that were happening in the country at that time.

Meanwhile, anti-government protests are currently underway in various parts of the country.

The authorities have taken measures to prevent opposition rallies from being held, with Kamukunji Grounds, Jacaranda Grounds, and Joseph Kangethe Grounds being cordoned off by anti-riot police.
