Foreign governments warn Ruto and Raila

On Tuesday, July 18, ambassadors and high commissioners offered to support mediation negotiations between President William  Ruto and the late Prime Minister Raila  Odinga regarding the forthcoming  statewide protests. The ambassadors urged the two presidents to engage in discussion to stop any future  casualties in joint statement.

They expressed remorse over the destruction of property and the loss of life that occurred during the Azimio la Umoja rallies during the past few weeks.


A portion of the statement said, “We are saddened by the loss of life and concerned by the high levels of violence, including the use of live rounds and the destruction of property, during the recent demonstrations.”

We acknowledge the struggles many Kenyans endure on a daily basis and call on all parties to express their worries via constructive discourse and settle their disagreements amicably in order to unite the country and prevent more casualties.


The letter was endorsed by 13 embassies, including those from Germany, Canada, the United States, Norway, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.

However, despite pressure from the government and religious authorities, Azimio insisted that the protests will continue during a press conference on Tuesday at noon.


“Azimio confirms that the protests scheduled for this week’s Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will go forward despite threats to withdraw security,”


“The use of force was grossly inappropriate and unnecessary. Part of Azimio’s statement said, “We have always pleaded with our demonstrators to be peaceful, and we urge them to continue doing so.


In earlier media reports, it was claimed that professor Makau Mutua and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed were among the opposition representatives at the secret meetings between Raila and Ruto.
