This comes hours after Ruto is reported to have held a high-level security meeting ahead of planned protests this week against the Finance Bill 2024.

According to videos seen by K24 Digital, security personnel manning the event restrained themselves from using excessive force including lobbying teargas canisters or using water canons as has been witnessed before.

Speaking during the event, Ruto promised protestors, most of whom are young people, to have a conversation with them on what the future of the Finance Bill 2024 would be.

“Our young people have stepped forward to engage in the affairs of their country. They have done their democratic duty, to stand and be recognized. I’m proud of them. We’ll have a conversation with you to identify your issues and work together as a nation,” Ruto stated.

On Sunday, Kenyans from different parts of the country interrupted church services in different places demanding that the church declares its stand on the Finance Bill 2024.

At Holy Family Basilica, church members were granted a few seconds to chant ‘Reject Finance Bill’, led by a youth who was carrying the Kenyan flag.

The same was witnessed at other churches including the Nairobi Chapel.
