Chaos and Teargas in NASA protests [Video & Photos]

Police lobbed teargas after rival political supporters from NASA and Jubilee charged at each other.

Chaos broke out during the NASA protests in Nairobi on Tuesday afternoon.

Police were forced to lob teargas after rival political supporters from NASA and Jubilee charged at each other outside IEBC offices on University Way.

NASA protestors had paralysed transport in some parts of the CBD and University Way as they carried placards chanting slogans demanding the immediate sacking of some IEBC officials who include CEO Ezra Chiloba.

On Monday President Uhuru Kenyatta warned the Government will not tolerate violence by the Opposition in their street demonstrations

“NASA have announced that they will engage in street demonstrations on Tuesday instead of holding campaigns. Demonstrating is their constitutional right. But we are telling them if they attempt to destroy food, torch people kiosks, break into shops, stone motorists or stop other Kenyans from going to work, they will know that there is a Government,” President Kenyatta warned.

Earlier on Tuesday, similar protests were witnessed in Kisumu County as NASA supporters demonstrated calling for the sacking of Chiloba.
