ODM Governor Set To Run For Senator; State Puts the Brakes on Annuity Roads Plan & Govt’s New System to Help Kenyans Find Jobs

Good morning,

President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua have recently come under pressure to break their silence as the country tries to come to terms with a surge in femicide cases.

Political leaders, human rights activists and celebrities last week joined the peaceful protests with ‘stop killing women’ as the rallying message against the senseless killings that have sparked outrage in the country.

However, despite the huge media coverage of the killings and the protests received, the country’s top leadership is yet to speak against the series of brutal murders.

Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria is arguably the senior-most government official who has spoken up against this troubling surge as he vowed a crackdown on the culprits.

Do you think the critics are justified in pressuring the President to speak about these criminal activities?

Meanwhile, here are the stories making headlines on Opera News today:
