Return of Maandamano?

After months of relative calm following opposition and the Kenyan government brokering bipartisan talks, Azimio la Umoja is threatening to return back to the street to force the government to walk back on the new tax laws that promise to hit households hard. The new tax laws will raise the cost of fuel, taxes on small businesses, a levy for a government housing scheme and charges on certain imports.
President William Ruto returns from France that has been the centre of anti-pension protests, with a pledge to allow the opposition to exercise their right to picket as long as they do not destroy property, and it will be interesting to see how the police will treat Azimio’s street engagements.
