Gen Z’s ‘Occupy Counties’ Movement Targets Governors in Rift Valley Demos Tomorrow

Gen Zs have now seemingly shifted their protests to counties, with two parallel demonstrations scheduled for Thursday in separate Rift Valley devolved units.

The planned demos come barely 24 hours after protesters held peaceful demonstrations in Nandi County, complaining about stalled projects while at the same time demanding for the audit of all procurement contracts.

Hundreds of protesters on Tuesday marched to Nandi Governor Stephen Sang’s office, seeking answers for delayed projects in the county.

“Hatuoni mpango wa Governor; hakuna hata lami huku Nandi. Governor aende nyumbani kama hafanyi kazi,” Hillary Tanui, a resident, stated.

Governor Sang’ however did not address the protesters.

The demos have spread to the neighbouring counties of Kericho and Bomet, where protests have been scheduled for Thursday.

Bomet Governor Hillary Barchok has since claimed that politicians are orchestrating planned demonstrations in his county to undermine service delivery.

“I am fully committed to acting on issues of the Gen Zs, my administration cannot ignore that all is not well in our county. This government is all inclusive,” he said.

In neighboring Kericho County, protesters aim to pressure Governor Eric Mutai’s administration to account for compensation funds for Londiani accident victims, among other audit queries.
