AU calls for Dialogue after Azimio’s public protests turn chaotic

The African Union Commission  has expressed its concern at the violence that ensued after Azimio’s public protests in various counties. 

Led by the African Union Commission Chairperson, Moussa Faki, on Tuesday, March 28,decried the loss of life, damage of  property and the interruption of certain economic activities in Nairobi.

Faki has  urged all stakeholders to engage in dialogue to address differences between political players in the supreme interest of national unity and reconciliation.

“In this regard, the Chairperson wishes to recall the successful conduct of General Elections in August 2022 in Kenya and the subsequent unanimous confirmation of the election outcome by the Supreme Court.”

“The Chairperson reiterates the total solidarity with and support to the Government and the People of Kenya’s efforts working towards national unity, peace and stability in the country,” the statement read in part. 

The statement came at a time when the Azimio la Umoja Coalition had vowed to continue with the protests despite the hurdles placed by the government in its attempts to contain the situation.

Both sides of the political divide also affirmed a firm stance ruling out the possibility of a “handshake”.
