At her houses in Gatundu and Muthaiga, the former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta's security has been withdrawn by Kenya's governing administration.

Officials claim that at around 1700 hrs. today, Mama Ngina, who is also the mother of former president Uhuru Kenyatta, had her protection removed instantly.

Officers from the General Service Unit and Administration Police were instructed to leave the area and report to the closest police station.

Officials claim that the former First Lady was not informed of the administration's plans before they were carried out.

She had an entire team of 30 cops on duty monitoring all of her properties before the initial recall last year, with a chief inspector serving as the senior officer.

The eight officers who were left behind for the former first lady—including the senior sergeant—have now all been summoned back.

The anticipated three-day rebellion against the government rallies, which are slated to start on Wednesday, is to be put to an end by political talks between opposition leader Raila Odinga and President William Ruto, according to the Law Society of Kenya.

In an attempt to avert the impending crisis, LSK President Eric Theuri stated during a news conference on Tuesday that the lawyers' organisation is prepared to mediate the discussions.

"The law society is eager and prepared to contribute its competent arbitrators to bring along the different groups of politicians to find an effective answer to the difficulties we encounter as a nation," he declared.

"These demonstrations bring to light enduring systemic problems in our nation. We can find answers to promote enduring peace by having a national conversation. We can only create a brighter future for ourselves and our children through open and polite dialogue.

The LSK leader urged the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) to speed up probes into the events after criticising the police for using disproportionate force to disperse and control the demonstrators, which resulted in deaths and injuries.

Theuri stated that to prevent tensions and incite protestor violence, "law enforcement of demonstrations must focus on promoting peaceful assembly" and that "any use of force must be guided by the principles of legality, necessity, proportionality, and professionalism."
