Kenya protesters clash with police at anti-IEBC march

Supporters of Kenya’s main opposition, National Super Alliance (NASA) clashed with police on Monday as they embarked on a protest to the main offices of the elections body.

NASA, led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, has resorted to weekly protests against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in their continued push for some of its officials to be fired.

Local media portals are reporting injuries to protesters as police fired tear gas and in some cases live bullets. The offices of the IEBC remains under high security presence.

A video also showed how a car rammed into protesters injuring a number of them.

NASA secured a September 1 annulment of presidential elections held in August. The Supreme Court asked the IEBC to conduct a rerun which it has slated October 26 to undertake.

NASA, however, insists that it would only participate if necessary electoral reforms are undertaken – part of which reforms should include firing of some IEBC officers.
