Protests rocked the counties of Kisumu, Siaya, Migori and parts of Nairobi. In Migori, youth blocked the Isebania-Migori road rendering normal activities undoable.

In Siaya protestors set ablaze the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) offices as they engaged police officers in running battles.

The cases were similar in Nairobi as protestors engaged officers in running battles which left some protestors injured.

Azimio leader Raila Odinga has insisted that protests will continue until their demands are met by the Ruto administration despite the counter by security officers.

"No justification exists for the brutality that we and the residents of Pipeline have endured this afternoon! Ruto & Gachagua your days are numbered & count them well!" Raila said.

All eyes have shifted to President William Ruto who has also held his stand of holding no talks with Odinga.
