The Central Business District (CBD) of Nairobi City, the nation's capital, has been overrun by hundreds of hustlers, comprising of youths, protesting against President William Ruto's current administration. According to the video clip, you will come across in this article, hundreds of youths are heard chanting “Ruto must Go! Ruto must go!” and other anti-government slogans.

Mr. Ruto came to power in a dramatic event following Wafula Chebukati, a former head of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), declaring him the winner of the presidential election held on August 9, 2022. The former Prime Minister who doubles up as the leader of the Azimio Coalition party, His Excellency the Right Honorable Raila Odinga, and his political allies, however, opposed Mr. William Ruto's purported victory, raising a lot of questions about it.

Many Kenyans, especially the younger generation, have been accusing the head of state of breaking his campaign promises to the nation, thereby raising political tensions across the country. Ever since His Excellency the Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga declared mass protests across the nation, there have been widespread demonstrations against Mr. Ruto's Regime with many young people siding with the late former prime minister Raila Odinga, citing challenges related to high living expenses.

Based on a recent video clip uploaded by Mutembei TV on their official website, hundreds of young people who had initially supported Ruto have reportedly stormed Nairobi CBD with anti-Ruto protests, calling for his removal from the State House and the immediate deployment of His Excellency the Rt. Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga is the duly-elected president.

The youth protesters' action comes barely two days before the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition movement's scheduled March 20th, 2023, mass protest as they plan to walk to the State House.

A group of Nairobi residents stopped a municipality road this morning while yelling that president William Ruto needs to evacuate the presidential palace. This occurs two days ahead of the anticipated Azimio protests, which are set to begin on Monday. In previous rallies in Kiambu County, the former Prime Minister invited all Kenyans to attend in big numbers on Monday to demonstrate the high cost of living.

As of late, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party has threatened to organize large-scale demonstrations and rallies against President William Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza administration, blaming the Head of State for electoral fraud in the 2022 presidential elections.

Parents and teachers have been left in complete confusion since the former Prime Minister's designated mass protest on Monday falls on the day that children will be returning to their respective schools following the conclusion of their midterm break.

The demonstrations in Nairobi CBD have sparked mixed reactions among Kenyans with most people siding with the youths' call for lower costs of living. Below are some of the reactions from social media users:

Do you think H.E. the Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga will be successful in his move for a better country full of peace, unity, and inclusivity devoid of tribalism?
