Heavy Security Ahead Scheduled Protests In Kenya And South Africa

In anticipation of upcoming protests, opposition parties in South Africa and Kenya have advised people to take the day off of work on Monday.

Several thousand soldiers are being stationed all around South Africa to help protect vital infrastructure during the anticipated protests.

The extreme opposition party, the Economic Freedom Fighters, has urged citizens to skip work and aid in the country’s shutdown.

It demands that Cyril Ramaphosa, the president of South Africa, resign due to his management of the country’s economy.

The status of the economy, unemployment, corruption, and the constant power outages have caused a lot of irritation and fury in South Africa.

Yet, it is still unclear how widespread the radical Economic Freedom Fighters’ proposal for a national shutdown will be.

According to Kenyan local media, there were many security personnel in the city of Nairobi on Monday, notably in and around important government structures.

Raila Odinga, the head of the opposition in Kenya, is organizing nationwide demonstrations against President William Ruto and his administration.

According to Mr. Odinga, the protest will be in opposition to the high cost of living and what he calls an unconstitutional rule.

Police have issued a warning that anyone who disturbs the quiet will face resolute action amid fears of violence.

According to President William Ruto, there is no justification for the protests, and Mr. Odinga has been charged with threatening the nation with violence and anarchy.

Although Mr. Odinga claims they would be peaceful, protests traditionally have been anything but.
