Protesters in Nyanza heeded the call by Azimio leader Raila Odinga to take to the streets on what has become mass action Monday.

In Kisumu, most businesses closed and very few vehicles were seen around the bus park and along the roads.

Residents were seen on the streets riding motorbikes as some walked along the streets chanting and singing.

Protesters shouted on top of their voices as they banged kitchen utensils to decry the high cost of living. Others started bonfires using tyres in the middle of major roads in the city.

In Siaya county, the demonstrations were led by some leaders from the region. Protesters carried placards and twigs while chanting about the high cost of living.

In Migori, demonstrators barricaded major roads with stones and tree logs. Police were forced to lob teargas canisters to disperse the crowd.
