The Central Business District was also cordoned off to prevent protesters from accessing the city centre.

However, tension was however witnessed in Nairobi’s informal settlements, including Mathare and Kibra slums.

Azimio leader Raila Odinga as well as his co-principals Martha Karua and Kalonzo Musyoka did not show up for Wednesday’s protests.

Odinga has Thursday morning called on his supporters participate in the peaceful protests.

The main demands of the opposition outfit include lowering the cost of living and repealing the Finance Act 2023.
