Activist cum photojournalist Boniface Mwangi was on Friday banned from attending a National Youth Service (NYS) pass out parade in Gilgil attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to Mwangi he was briefly arrested for taking pictures of the place that was “chaotic and dirty”.

“The chaos, the dirt, police confiscating food, drinks and throwing everything on the floor. No dust bins, no order, and very aggressive language by law enforcers, barking at people. Police, NYS cadets have sticks to push and hit people,” he said on social media.
