Residents of Malaba Town in Busia County are protesting the killing of five guards Sunday night by unknown people.
The five, who were guarding shops in the town, were killed at around midnight.
Residents discovered the bodies and alerted the police, who took them to the mortuary.
They then took to the streets of the border town on Monday morning to protest the killings and demanded justice for the victims.
The protesters blocked the busy Eldoret-Malaba highway, which connects Kenya and Uganda.
Cargo trucks heading to and out of the two countries were held up on the highway following the protests.
Police fired in the air in a bid to disperse the angry protesters.
