Kenya police unleash their latest anti-riot gear to deal with CORD protest

By Standard Reporter | May 9th 2016

Nairobi, Kenya: CORD leaders led by Raila Odinga and their supporters have vowed to continue with anti-IEBC protests to force the commissioners out of office.

Tens of police officers have been mobilised to guard Anniversary Towers where Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission have offices, ahead of the planned CORD protest. The police officers are more armed and are on guard with the latest anti-riot gear that the Jubilee government recently bought.

The officers are under instructions not to allow any protester near the premises.

Police want the organisers of the protest to cancel it and instead seek an alternative solution to their problems.
