Maandamano Tuesday: Freedom turns Ugly During the Azimio Demonstrations

Kenyans enjoy the freedom of converging, picketing, demonstrating, protesting, and expressions. This is as directed by the nations constitution.

Kenyan politicians affiliated to the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition have been using this freedom to protest to express their views to the ruling Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

Having urged Kenyans to turn up on Tuesday and escort the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leaders to the key offices as they deliver their detailed demand letters, supporters received call to action positively.

In Nairobi, protests have been witnessed in major parts that support Azimio’s agenda. Having cried for the freedom and forced for it, Azimio supporters in some regions have been reported to misuse the freedom as accorded by the Constitution and as promised by Azimio leaders to be specific Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga to be peaceful.


In regions like Kibra, which is the “bedroom for Raila Odinga” protesters, have jeopardised the transport sector after blocking and lighting bonfire on the highways. The key question is “is this what they call peaceful demonstration?

It will be an expression of fear if I say it was peaceful and freedom well utilised.
