Activists organise Saba Saba March against government

Kenyan human rights activists have organized a Saba Saba day march for today in a bid to pressure the government to follow the constitution.

Under the theme of ‘tekeleza katiba’, Social Justice Centres Working Groups have called on Kenyans to turn out in large numbers in the Saba Saba day march.

Areas included in the march

“The march will start in all the venues with Social Justice Centres that is Kayole, Komarock, Dandora, Kariobangi, Korogocho, Ruaraka, Githurai, Kiamaiko, Kibera, Mathare, Kamukunji, Mukuru, Makadara and Kiambu.” The statement opens.

They would start the march at 7.00 AM, then march to Harambee House.

The march comes at a time when the governing party, Jubilee has come under criticism for failing to honour the constitution.

Defeating ‘deep state’

In their statement, the Social Justice Centres said that they were out to defeat ‘the deep state.’

“30 years ago, young men and women stood against the Moi dictatorship and met at the historic Kamukunji grounds and said no to dictatorship despite the threats. Tomorrow we celebrate and join those gallant soldiers, showing that the struggle is still on. We will not relent until we defeat the deep state.” The statement concludes.

Police warning

On matters of violence, peaceful protests often take a turn for the worse when the police violently disperse protesters.

Already, the police have dispersed Saba Saba protesters in Mathare, Kibera among other areas. There are reports, too, that the police have arrested 17 of the activists.

Furthermore, some of the protesters may have sustained injuries following the police riots.

Kenyan police have come under criticism for the use of excessive force. And that side of them is often evident in their brutal breaking up of protests.

The police are accused of killing many Kenyans in low-income neighbourhoods Like Mathare and Kibera. Consequently, the areas have become great grounds for grassroots activism.
