•This is not the first time that Kamau has been arrested for causing unrest with his protests against the cost of living.
•On May 23, Kamau was arrested for disrupting the IEBC pre-candidate registration meeting with the presidential aspirants.
An activist was on Monday arrested at the Bomas of Kenya where the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has staged its National Tallying Center.
Julius Kamau was taken away from the premises after protesting against the looming elections.
In a viral video seen by the Star, Kamau can be heard saying he cannot eat in a country that does not care that its citizens are dying of hunger.
"Yes I have a dream today," he says before adding that he is on a hunger strike, to make perfect his protests.
He was holding a white single-use paper plate with the writing, "No food, No elections".
"The silence is killing us. And now it is time to break the silence... I have committed no crime," he shouted as officers manhandled him to a waiting police van.
This is not the first time that Kamau has been arrested for causing unrest with his protests against the cost of living.
On May 23, Kamau was arrested for disrupting the IEBC pre-candidate registration meeting with the presidential aspirants.
He claimed that politicians have destroyed the country.
Back then, he was holding a placard reading "Africa is still in slavery bondage".
On April 7, 2022, the Activist was arrested outside the National Treasury Building.
He was arrested just before Treasury CS Ukur Yatani read the 2022/23 Financial Year Budget.
He was however released the next day. On April 9, while speaking to a local news outlet, he regretted that Kenyans were sitting idly as they suffer instead of pushing for their rights.
"My desire is to see a change in this country. I was not very happy because I was arrested for expressing myself. It is not right that people are not allowed to speak out," he said then.
