‘Tafadhali Kujeni tuongee’ GSU Police in Kibra now calls for dialogue as running battles intensify

In a rare scene during the ongoing protests in Kibra, a police officer was seen engaging protesters in a dialogue in an attempt to calm the situation. The officer, whose identity was not revealed, urged the protesters to gather at the DC grounds so that he could talk to them. He pointed out that the protests had paralysed businesses and affected school-going children’s ability to access schools.

The officer further posed a thought-provoking question to the demonstrators, asking what they would gain if Raila Odinga and President William Ruto decided to make a handshake and end their political differences. He highlighted the futility of the protests and urged the protesters to engage in peaceful dialogue instead.

“Let me ask you one thing if President William Ruto and Azimio leader Raila Odinga decide to go for a handshake tomorrow what will you have gained after protesting and throwing stones?” The unidentified police said.

“I don’t have a problem with you, if you throw stones at me, I shall be forced to protect myself and end up hurting you. I will go to jail to save my life. Talk to your people.

The officer’s actions came in the wake of several protesters’ injuries and arrests as anti-riot police continued to engage the demonstrators in running battles. The protesters chanted slogans like “No Raila, no peace, Ruto must go…bado mapambano” as they tried to advance to the main highway.

Kibra is known as one of Raila Odinga’s key support bases in the city, and the ongoing protests have heightened political tensions in the area. Despite the police’s efforts to quell the situation, some protesters have resorted to violence, throwing stones and engaging in clashes with the police.
