At the same time as the protests continued in the capital of Kenya against the tax increase bill, the anti-riot police of this country used tear gas to disperse the protesters.

According to Webangah News quoted by Mehr News Agency, according to Reuters, in the continuation of the protests in Kenya in response to the tax increase bill, the country’s anti-riot police used tear gas to disperse the protesters. After a week of violent and deadly protests, the protesters, most of whom are youths, have demanded an increase in demonstrations.

Reuters reporters have reported the sight of thick smoke caused by tear gas being fired on one of the main roads of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, and the presence of a large number of riot police on the streets of this city. .

Kenya TV has published images of hundreds of protesters in Mombasa and dozens more in Kisumu, in which protesters can be seen holding palm leaves (a symbol of peace). . In the city of Migori located in the southwest of Kenya, protesters also set tires of cars on fire.

Despite President William Ruto abandoning the proposed tax increase bill, the protesters have refused his request for negotiations. In the protests that started on June 18 in this country, dozens of people have been killed in clashes between the protesters and the police.

Reuters wrote that most of the casualties were killed last Tuesday during the attempt of protesters to storm the Kenyan parliament. According to the announcement of the National Human Rights Commission of Kenya, at least 39 people have been killed in the protests so far, and this has led to increased pressure on Ruto to resign.
