A document bearing the logo of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party calling off countrywide protests in Kenya has attracted social media attention in the country.

“Following the withdrawal of security of our party leader Rt. Hon. Raila Amollo Odinga, we the leadership of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party hereby confirms to the general public that Monday Demonstrations has been called off forthwith,” the document begins.

“Considering the events on last week where Baba’s vehicle was heavily damaged, this has warranted us to reschedule our Peaceful Demonstration to a later Date,” it says.

The document also says that Kenyan president William Ruto’s government is “illegal” and its alleged actions “unconstitutional”.

It says the opposition leaders will resume protests once their security is reinstated.
