“Police everywhere, hiding with Sankara Kinuthia somewhere in the CBD. Police have decided to violate the constitution and target active citizens for #SabaSabaMarchForOurlives. Shockingly, most Kenyans don’t even know it’s #SabaSaba. We need to rewrite our history books, ” he wrote.

Today was 30th Saba Saba anniversary, the day on which nationwide protests took place in 1990 to demand multiparty democracy from the Moi regime.

In today’s protests, the activists were condemning police brutality witnessed in the country in the recent past.

Netizens have taken to social media to call for the immediate release of Mwangi and his colleagues.
