Police were on Tuesday forced to fire tear gas to disperse NASA and Jubilee supporters after they clashed outside IEBC’s Anniversary Towers offices.

NASA supporters who chanted ‘Chiloba must go’ were confronted by a group of Jubilee’s who shouted ‘We want peace’.

Both groups fled after anti-riot officers hurled teargas canisters at them.

Coughing while scampering for safety, some of the protesters were seen running up the University of Nairobi footbridge.

Several volleys of tear gas were fired near the election commission’s headquarters, a Reuters witness said. When they regrouped, security officers fired more tear gas and beat some of them with batons.

Among those NASA wants out, for allegedly bungling the August presidential election, is Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba.
