Activists in Kenya are rethinking their strategy after recent anti-government protests turned violent. They blame “goons” hired by politicians for the violence, which they fear could discredit their movement.

Some activists are calling to cancel the next protest planned for Thursday. President William Ruto’s government blames the violence on criminal gangs.

Initial protests against tax hikes were peaceful but turned violent when demonstrators stormed parliament and police opened fire, killing dozens.

Ruto later withdrew the tax increases, but protests continued with broader demands, including anti-corruption measures and Ruto’s resignation. Some activists now believe they should pause and strategize to avoid further violence and casualties.
