A section of residents from Kisumu and Kisii Counties also too to the streets to light candles in solidarity of families who lost their loved ones during the anti-government protests that started in March 2023.
Amnesty International, a non-governmental organisation, says at least 30 people have been killed by police since March 2023 when the protests started.
In Kisumu, the residents were led by County Assembly Speaker Elisha Oraro. They lay flowers and lit candles at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital.
In Kisii County, the Azimio la Umoja supporters coverged at the Kisii Capital Roundabout where they lit candles.
The Azimio la Umoja coalition suspended protests scheduled for Wednesday, July 26, saying the day would be spent holding a vigil for victims who lost their lives during the anti-government protests that started in March.
"We are calling on Kenyans to come out, light candles and lay flowers, preferably white, in remembrance of and respect for the victims.
"On that day, we will also roll out the process of reaching out to the families of the victims with a view to offering any assistance that can lessen their burden. During the vigils, candle lighting and laying of flowers, we encourage Kenyans to say prayers and read out the names of victims," said Azimio la Umoja in a statement.
