What’s behind the Kenya protests? | Protests News



Protesters have taken to the streets in Kenya to decry the end of subsidies and rising taxes as the country’s debt crisis looms. These protests were called for by the opposition parties, including former presidential candidate Raila Odinga. Odinga’s followers believe last year’s election was rigged against him, furthering mistrust in the current government led by President William Ruto. The police response to the protests has been harsh, killing at least 20 protesters this month and injuring hundreds.
