Azimio Demos: Kenya Railways suspends commuter train services


Kenya Railways has temporarily suspended Monday’s commuter train services.

Kenya Railways management however, said all Madaraka Express link trains between Nairobi Central Station and the Nairobi Terminus will operate as scheduled.

The corporation however did not give more details in the suday evening statement.

The suspension comes on a day when the Opposition will be holding its second protest countrywide.

Last week, Azimio la Umoja coalition leader Raila Odinga announced the coalition will carry out mass protests twice a week.

He declared that they would be taking to the streets every Monday and Thursday weekly.

However, Inspector General of police Japhet Koome on Sunday banned the planned countrywide protests by the Azimio la Umoja Coalition.

The IG said no one will be allowed to hold demos this week.

Koome threatened to arrest the big guns, including  Raila if they attempt to hold protests.

Police have warned against any mass action assemblies of protests, saying they are illegal.

The IG said that police will treat everyone equally when arresting protesters in the streets.

President William Ruto has insisted that anyone who will attempt to disrupt business will be dealt with accordingly.

He said that no one was above the law when it comes to the destruction of property.

The President emphasized that there was no reason for anyone to stand in the way of free enterprise, disrupt business or sabotage economic activity for personal interest.

However, Raila has maintained that next week’s demos will be held within the law.

He said that the Azimio La Umoja coalition respects the law and will remain peaceful.
