A protest has been called for by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) to be held at Parliament in Nairobi on Monday, October 12, demanding the dissolution of Parliament for failing to implement a two-thirds gender principle in Parliament. Reports suggest that approximately 20 participants will occupy Parliament at 14:30 (local time), and additional supporters are expected to gather outside the building to block MPs from entering. The United Green Movement Party is supporting the protest and will likely join the protest action.

A heightened security presence and associated disruptions in the vicinity of the rally are expected. Further associated protests are possible in the near term.


Those in Nairobi are advised to monitor developments, avoid all gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
