Kenya on edge: Will anti-tax protests erupt again amid national strike?

Protesters plan to hit Kenya’s streets on Tuesday after calling for a nationwide strike as they seek to pressure the government over controversial tax reforms that are before the parliament.
The government has warned protesters against engaging in violence and has insisted that they must wind up their agitation by 6:30pm local time (15:00 GMT) or sunset, whichever is earlier.
The government is trying to implement austerity programmes recommended by the International Monetary Fund, which has provided billions of dollars in loans to Kenya in recent years.
