Prayer for Kenya: Seeking Peaceful Resolution Amid Protests and Government Response

4 Luglio 2024

We pray for Kenya, where at least 22 people have died during protests against a proposed financial bill that aims to introduce taxes and fees on daily items and services, including education, fuel, bank transfers, internet data, and diapers. The government intended to raise an additional 2.7 billion in domestic revenue to pay off debt and reduce the deficit, but these measures have sparked widespread anger among the population. Young people led peaceful protests in various cities, demanding the bill be dropped.
