After days of bloody protests against proposed tax hikes and the removal of the bill, Kenyans were still shaken to the core.

The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights also reported cases of abduction and arbitrary arrests.

During the June 25 protest alone, 26 people were killed, the body said. Many more were wounded. Several businesses are also counting losses following looting and burning down of buildings.

However, calls for another protest this Tuesday persist, especially on X (formerly Twitter) while some even demanded the president resign.

In anticipation of more protests, Nairobi still has a heavy presence of security personnel.

In a bid to find a lasting solution, President William Ruto has been meeting different groups at the State House to find a lasting solution following the protests.

The President has directed the setting up a committee to address the concerns of youth who are dissatisfied with the state of the country’s affairs.

There were peaceful protests within the capital’s central business district and candle lighting gathering at the Jeevanjee Garden in honour of those who were killed during the Tuesday and Thursday protests.
