Chaos as police teargas anti-graft protesters at Uhuru Park – PHOTOS
A demonstration by members of the civil society to protest against corruption ended in chaos on Thursday as police used teargas to disperse the protesters.
There are also claims that the police also fired live bullets on the protesters who wanted to deliver a letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The protesters had gathered at Uhuru Park Freedom Corner and were joined by hundreds of citizens but the police, who stood at a distance as the group gathered, descended on them with buttons and tear gas just when the protest was about to commence.
The protesters who had not left the Freedom Corner were forced to scamper for safety as the police gave chase.
Activists Boniface Mwangi’s wife was arrested during the protest and taken to Central Police Station but was later released.
