2 shot as anti-IEBC demos turn chaotic in Homa Bay County
At least two people are nursing gun wounds after police on Friday shot and injured NASA anti-IEBC protesters in Homa Bay County.
The two, a 70-year-old woman and a boda-boda operator have been admitted to Ombo Hospital for treatment.
The Opposition today, defied Acting Interior CS Fred Matiangi’s order banning the protests by holding, albeit, unsuccessful demonstrations across the country.
In Kisumu County, for example, gunshots rented the air in Kondele as police engaged the protesters in running battles.
The police blocked the opposition supporters from accessing the Central Business District resulting to the chaos.
Yesterday, Matiang’i banned all demos in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu CBDs on grounds that the protesters were robbing people and destroying businesses.
NASA, however, have vowed to continue with their demos until the electoral body implements the ‘irreducible minimums’.
