Four Countries in Africa have lined Monday 20th March, 2023 for a mass action to alert their various ruling governments of their unsatisfactory with their reign. South Africa, Tunisia, Nigeria and Kenya are the major countries in Africa who have set aside 20th March for an anti-government protest.
In Kenya, opposition leader Hon. Raila Odinga unlawfully decleared Monday 20th as a public holiday to allow his supporters join the mass protest to ensure that they force President William Ruto out of the office. The opposition leader claims that Mr. Ruto has not met his demands of lowering the cost of living. He also claims that during the last general election, his victory was stolen by the rulling government which he now wants to claim.
South Africa has not been left behind in the protests as their opposition has maintained that they will go to streets on Monday to protest on the way the current government is oppressing and frustrating opposition leaders for being questioned about corruption matters.
On the other side, Nigerian opposition leaders claims that the current government was involved in looting of votes that saw their win snatched from them.
