Kenya Railways suspends commuter train following Azimio’s Maandamano stand


Kenya Railways temporarily suspended its train services on Monday, March 27, following protests organized by the opposition group, Azimio la Umoja.


The protests are aimed at urging the government to take action to reduce the high cost of living in the country. In a public notice released on Sunday, March 26, the company cited “unavoidable circumstances” as the reason for the postponement.

However, the Madaraka Express Link trains between the Nairobi Central Station and the Nairobi Terminus will still run as scheduled.

The decision has inconvenienced many customers who had booked and planned their travel on Monday. The company apologized for the inconvenience caused and assured customers that they will resume normal operations as soon as the situation permits.

The protests have led to the disruption of most commuting services and businesses in the city, as police tightened security in different areas of the city. This has resulted in significant inconvenience to the residents of Nairobi, who rely heavily on public transportation to move around the city.

The high cost of living has been a major issue in Kenya, with many citizens struggling to make ends meet. The protests organized by Azimio la Umoja seek to draw attention to this issue and urge the government to take action to address it.

The decision by Kenya Railways to postpone their train services is a clear indication of the impact that the ongoing protests are having on the country’s economy and transportation system.
