Why Azimio Suspended Mass Protests Set To Resume On Thursday Countrywide

Kenya's political landscape has been marked by tension and uncertainty in recent months, as opposition groups have taken to the streets to protest against what they see as an increasingly repressive government. However, it appears that a glimmer of hope has emerged in the form of an unexpected development in the bi-partisan talks committee.

According to National Assembly Leader of Minority, Opiyo Wandayi, the opposition coalition Azimio has decided to suspend mass protests that were set to resume on Thursday countrywide, following Kenya Kwanza's move to replace Adan Keynan in the bi-partisan talks committee.

The committee, which is tasked with overseeing negotiations between the government and opposition groups, has been the subject of controversy in recent weeks. Azimio had previously boycotted the talks, citing concerns over the committee's impartiality and accusing the government of attempting to stifle dissent.

However, the decision to replace Keynan with another member has been seen as a positive step towards resolving the impasse. While Azimio has not yet indicated whether they will return to the talks, the suspension of mass protests suggests that they are open to the possibility of dialogue. (open this link for more)
