On 20 July 2023, anti-government protests are continuing for a second consecutive day in the capital Nairobi and elsewhere in Kenya, including the cities of Mombasa and Kisumu, amid three-day countrywide demonstrations called by the Azimio la Umoja–One Kenya opposition coalition to denounce tax hikes and the rising cost of living in the country. In Nairobi, a heavy police presence has been reported near the Huruma grounds and the Jacarnada grounds ahead of planned rallies. Protesters in the city’s Kibera area clashed with police officers earlier in the day and set ablaze at least three vehicles. The overall situation appears notably calmer than the previous day when significant clashes occurred between protesters and police officers in Nairobi, Mombasa and other cities across the country. Local media reported that six people were killed in Kenya during protest-related violence on 19 July, while approximately 30 others were injured. Authorities arrested more than 300 people nationwide. Opposition leader Raila Odinga has periodically organized mass anti-government demonstrations since the previous month to oppose Finance Act 2023, which levies new taxes on citizens. Although the bill was signed into law on 26 June, Kenya’s High Court suspended implementation of the bill on 30 June. Kenya’s Court of Appeal is set to conduct hearings on 28 July regarding the High Court’s verdict.
