Nasa supporters back in the streets

Supporters of the National Super Alliance (Nasa) on Monday returned to the streets as the opposition stepped up its push for reforms at the electoral commission ahead of repeat presidential election.

They protested in the capital Nairobi, Lamu, Kisumu, Kakamega, Homa Bay and Mombasa on Mondat morning, heeding the call of the leaders to protest thrice a week— on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays.

In Kisumu, transport was paralysed and businesses closed in some parts of the lake-side out of fear of looting.

The demonstrators said they want the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) reformed, and its CEO Ezra Chiloba and 10 other officials accused of bungling August 8 poll shown the door.

The youth lit bonfires and barricaded the roads using rocks and burning tyres.
