Acting CS for Interior, Dr Fred Matiang’i has banned demonstrations within Kisumu, Nairobi and Mombasa central business districts.
The ban comes in the wake of anti-IEBC protests by NASA supporters that starting October 16, will be held on a daily basis.
”In accordance with the law, due to the recent breach of peace as witnessed, the government will not allow demonstrations in Nairobi CBD, Mombasa and Kisumu,” the CS said.
He also noted that the move was meant to protecting other Kenyans’ rights.
”Whereas every person has the right to peacefully demonstrate, the enjoyment of this right is not absolute. We have noticed with a lot of concern the breach of peace by NASA in their demos in Kisumu, Homabay, Siaya, Migori and Nairobi counties by attacking police stations, looting and attacking of civilians.”
Matiang’i also noted that NASA CEO, Norman Magaya will be charged with destruction of property during the protests.
He also asked Kenyans whose property was destroyed to report the matter to the Nairobi Central Police Station OCS.
