An anti-corruption protest is scheduled to take place in Nairobi on Friday, August 21. Participants of the protest are scheduled to gather at approximately 08:00 (local time) at Uhuru Park before marching towards the Office of the President. The protest is being held over the alleged theft of funds intended for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) relief measures. Police have rejected the official letter of notice for the protest. However, the protest is still scheduled to go ahead.
A heightened security presence, as well as associated disruptions to transportation, are to be expected around the demonstration.
Those in Nairobi are advised to monitor developments, avoid all gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
