Uhuru outs military gadgets to quell 2nd Raila protest  


President Uhuru Kenyatta has unleashed intimidating military equipment to contain a second protest staged Monday by former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.

The gadgets were seen stationed on the streets of the capital Nairobi ahead of Raila’s march.

Raila and opposition supporters launched a second march to the electoral commission’s headquarters.


They have vowed to maintain their protests until senior officials including the chairman of the EC step down before the next general elections, expected in August 2017.

The march started at Uhuru Park and proceeded to Haile Selassie, Moi Avenue and University way paralysing businesses.

They are reports that the protesters were teargased at IEBC Anniversary Towers offices after Raila had just addressed them.


In response to police and military deployment, Raila said: “I pray for the day that the government fights corruption and terrorism with the same enthusiasm it reserves for its people.”

Last month, Raila and his group were intercepted by police and covered in clouds of teargas.
