Normalcy returned to Nairobi’s central business district as protesters kept off the anticipated Thursday anti-tax demos allowing the reopening of businesses and the public transport sector for Kenyans.

A spot check by KBC Thursday showed that shops and eateries were operational, while vehicles, including Public Service Vehicles, were operating normally in various areas.

However, police were deployed at various points and key government installations including the Parliament, the Supreme Court, and all entries leading to the state house.

Major towns such as Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret and Nakuru also reported normalcy.

At the same time, the business community in Kisumu appealed to elected leaders to address the concerns of the Kenyan youth, adding that it is their businesses that were adversely affected.

Nairobi which was the epicentre of the Gen Zs demonstrations was hardly hit.

At least 40 people have lost their lives and property worth billions of shillings destroyed in the protests during the two weeks of demonstrations.

In a statement, Interior Cabinet Secretary Kindiki Kithure put the criminals on notice warning that the reign of terror against the people of Kenya and the impunity of the dangerous gangs must end at whatever cost.
