The Azimio leaders led by Raila Odinga said the maandamano (protests) will be happening on Monday’s and on Thursday’s.

This comes as foreign nations recently expressed their opinions on the ongoing anti-government protests.

“We agree with the Africa Union Commission (AUC) Chairperson in recalling the successful conduct of the general elections in 2022 and the unanimous confirmation of their results by the Supreme Court,” read the statement.

The embassies expressed their worries over the recent violent protests and added that they were jeopardizing the progress made in the economic recovery.

“As friends and partners to Kenya, we are deeply concerned by the recent unrest and violence, as well as the destruction of places of worship and private property. It is also damaging economic activity at a time of significant financial challenges.

We, therefore, call on all leaders and all Kenyans to maintain peace, show restraint, and work toward a swift resolution for the common good of Kenya.” they said.

They added that they supported peaceful protests in the nation but cautioned that those taking part must respect the law.

“We recognise the right to peaceful protest under Kenya’s Constitution. All actors also have a responsibility to adhere to the principles of democracy, freedom, and the rule of law. We welcome the commitment by the Inspector General of Police to launch an investigation into recent events, including the destruction of private property,” added the foreign missions.
