The NASA MPS, fearing a violent confrontation, changed their route and headed towards City Hall  Way before ultimately making their way to Anniversary Towers.

Other NASA leaders including James Orengo and Johnstone Muthama later joined the protesters.

Nairobi Police Commander Japheth Koome had indicated that the security forces would not prevent anyone from protesting but cautioned demonstrators against disrupting lawful order.

“The police have not prevented anyone from picketing, our role is to enforce law and order,” Koome stated.

ODM Director of Communications Philip Etale, however complained that the Nairobi Business Community had been allowed to demonstrate even though NASA was the only entity given police license.
