Mend bridges, pardon peaceful protesters

-

The recent nationwide protests led by Gen Z have left an undeniable mark.

As the nation moves forward, we urge President William Ruto to prioritise national healing through a bold act of reconciliation: granting amnesty to peaceful protesters.

While condemning violence and looting, it’s crucial to acknowledge the genuine concerns driving these demonstrations.

These young Kenyans have awakened the nation’s conscience with their demands for economic fairness, accountability in government and a brighter future – aspirations shared by many.

Remarkably, these protests sparked a rare display of unity among our previously divided politicians. This newfound focus on shared challenges is a powerful testament to the transformative impact of peaceful protest.

Therefore, we call on President Ruto to offer amnesty to all those who peacefully exercised their fundamental right to protest. The harassment and prosecution of these innocent citizens must cease. Their actions have served as catalysts for crucial reforms.

By extending this olive branch, the President can demonstrate a commitment to both national healing and a productive dialogue with the youth. This act would foster trust between the government and the people, paving the way for a more inclusive and responsive political system.

Kenya’s path to prosperity is inextricably linked to its ability to hear the voices of its young generation and address their valid concerns.
