On 24th September, NASA leader Raila Odinga called on his supporters to turn out on 26th and physically remove IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba from office.
Following the planned protests by the opposition, a group by the name Gema Business Community said its members would come out in large numbers to counter the protestors, whom they accused of intending to destroy their investments.
The group's chairman, Wilfred Kamau while flanked by dreadlocked members of the group accused the opposition of using protests as an excuse to cause chaos and destroy the economy.
The group’s dreadlocked members subsequently gave rise to the #NairobiBusinessCommunityChallenge, which has swept across the nation, attracting Kenyan celebrities among them Boniface Mwangi, Juliani, Anto Neo Soul and Ciru Muriuki:
