We’re a coun­try of protesters, it’s time to stop, think, talk

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Of late, we have lit­er­ally turned into a demon­strat­ing coun­try. You will of­ten find doc­tors demon­strat­ing to­day, nurses to­mor­row, matatu driv­ers the day af­ter to­mor­row and the same for univer­sity stu­dents. Al­though hold­ing demos is a right in the Con­sti­tu­tion un­der the Bill of Rights, de­mon­stra­tors should air their griev­ances in a man­ner that does not in­con­ve­nience other cit­i­zens. Protests are dis­rup­tive and in­con­ve­nienc­ing, es­pe­cially when they block roads. Po­lice should en­sure demos do not in­ter­fere with other peo­ple’s ac­tiv­i­ties.
