Teargas in Kasarani

Matatu operators who ply the Mwiki to Kasarani route began their protests early on Monday morning seeking to get the attention of government officials.

The operators are highlighting the poor state of the road which they claim has been neglected by authorities.

Residents and the matatu operators were on Wednesday lobbed with teargas as they continued to stage protests.
