Nasa cancels Tuesday anti-IEBC protests

The National Super Alliance (Nasa) has called off demonstrations against the electoral commission scheduled for Tuesday to allow them visit victims of police brutality across the country.

In a statement, Nasa leader Raila Odinga’s spokesman Dennis Onyango said they will take the day off to condole with supporters who were injured by police during the Monday protests.

“This is a temporary step to enable the coalition to attend to the supporters who were brutalised and hurt and families that lost loved ones today (Monday) after police and State-protected goons descended on protesters and Nasa leaders,” the statement read.

But the nationwide demonstrations will resume on Wednesday.

The coalition has condemned police for using excessive force in quelling protesters.

During the Monday protest in Kisumu, a student was shot dead.
