In this paper, the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition suspended mass protests that had earlier been scheduled to resume on Thursday, May 4.

The move by the opposition came hours after the Kenya Kwanza Alliance yielded to their demands and replaced Eldas MP Adan Keynan from the bipartisan committee.

“This evening, the leadership of Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party met and agreed to once suspend the mass protests that we had earlier scheduled to continue tomorrow. The coalition took this step following the decision by Kenya Kwanza to acceede to one of our demands that informed the resumption of mass action,” Wandayi said while announcing the calling off of the mass protests.

ODM leader Raila Odinga and President William Ruto’s sides agreed to give dialogue another chance even though Azimio threatened to call another round of anti-government protests in case the government showed little commitment to the talks.

Embattled televangelist Ezekiel Odero moved to court seeking orders to stop the government from freezing 15 bank accounts belonging to New Life Prayer Centre and Church, The Standard reports.

Through lawyer Danstan Omari, Odero filed a case before a Mombasa High Court, seeking orders to stop interference with the religious activities or prayer sessions in the church complex.

Odero wants the court to stop the Inspector General of Police and Ministry of Interior Security from closing down operations at the church and TV station.

While terming allegations against his client are unsubstantiated, scandalous and untrue, Omari wants the government stopped from freezing Odero’s bank accounts in Cooperative Bank and NCBA Bank.

“In the interim and pending the hearing and determination of this application, this honourable court be pleased to issue a conservatory order temporarily restraining the respondents from taking adverse action against Odero or New Life Prayer Center and Church including the freezing of the church accounts in Cooperative Bank and NCBA bank,” said Omari.
