At least 50 people have died in the anti-government protests, Azimio alleges
The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya has called off this week’s anti-government protests to hold vigils for victims of police brutality.
The last week’s anti-government protests took place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
The coalition says it undertook a thorough assessment of the extent of suffering endured by demonstrators, alleging that at least 50 people died from the anti-government demonstrations with several others hospitalised with serious injuries.
Azimio through its press release claimed that several hospitals had been directed not to disclose casualty numbers or admit victims of police brutality.
According to the Azimio, they found evidence of police and hired gang shootings and killings of unarmed people at close range.
The Raila-led coalition reached the decision to hold solidarity parades and vigils in various locations across the country on Wednesday in place of the previously planned demonstration.
Raila has urged Kenyans to come out lighting candles and lay flowers to honor and remember the victims of police brutality; say prayers and read out their names.
The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition leaders have also called upon religious leaders to extend the exercise in remembrance of the victims of police brutality.
The coalition also reiterated the need for the International Criminal Court to take up the matter, “We ask Kenyans to pray also that the International Criminal Court takes up the matter based on an expanded list of perpetrators that we intend to furnish with the court with in due course.”
