PHOTOS: Police engage Kibra protestors in running battles

The demonstrators who tried to outsmart security agents retreated into the slums when they were confronted by the police.

Two police officers and a journalist were injured in the fracas.

Transport in and out of the estates was paralysed.

Martin Kariuki, a boda boda operator was robbed of his motorbike, and the thugs made away with his passenger's mobile phone and money.

Raila Odinga, the leader of Azimio la Umoja One-Kenya, said the protests will culminate in a march to State House, where they will present their demands to President William Ruto.

Earlier, Nairobi Police Commander Adamson issued a warning to anyone participating in the protests, saying that the protests are illegal and police were under firm instructions to deal with cases of lawlessness.
