Matiangi bans NASA anti-IEBC demos

Matiangi said the government will not allow demonstration within the CBD in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu.

Speaking on Thursday at Harambee House in Nairobi, Matiangi said the government had noted an escalation of lawlessness especially in Homa Bay, Kisumu, Siaya, Migori and Nairobi counties.

"In accordance with the law, due to the recent breach of peace as witnessed, the government will not allow any more demos," Matiangi stated.

He affirmed the government will not allow demonstration within the CBD in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu.

Following NASA leader Raila Odinga's official withdrawal from the repeat elections scheduled for October 26 on Tuesday, the coalition announced it will step up their street protests to push for electoral reforms at the IEBC.

The NASA leaders on Wednesday announced that they will hold the street demonstrations daily from next week as opposed to three times a week which they had earlier declared.
