3 dead, scores injured as police tackle protesters following Uhuru’s reelection

The people of Ruaraka and Mathare constituencies spent sleepless night as protesters engaged police in running battle. Three people are thought to have lost their lives near Gumba bridge after they were shot at by policemen yesterday night.


In the morning the violence escalated as NASA supporters took to the streets. In Mathare 4A, the police were seen going door to door, beating up people leaving scores injured in their wake.

However, the acting cabinet secretary of internal security Dr. Fred Matiangi has since denied any killings. Instead, he has told the media that no killings have been reported.
