Protesters beat up muggers in city centre

Protesters on Monday beat up several people who attempted to steal from shops and harass bystanders.

The youth who took advantage of the demos, went ahead of the crowd marching to town from Uhuru Park and mugged people.

They stole phones, wallets, shoes and jackets from pedestrians on Harambee and Moi avenues, University Way and Uhuru Highway.

When the protesters realised there were muggers among them, they took the law into their hands.

“Raila Odinga has just told us at Uhuru Park that we should be peaceful but these people have taken advantage of the situation, then the police will start beating us,” a protester said.

Two were seriously injured outside ICEA building when they snatched a phone and a wallet from a man.
