PROTEST WAS IL­LE­GAL – PO­LICE

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

Mi­hango MCA Paul Ka­dos was ar­rested last Fri­day for lead­ing res­i­dents in a protest against clo­sure of the Mi­hango-Kay­ole road by the Kenya De­fence Forces. The road cuts through the bar­racks’ land but it is the only link be­tween Mi­hango and Kay­ole. It was built in 1999. Po­lice dis­persed the crowd. They ar­rested sev­eral res­i­dents for un­law­ful assem­bly. But Ka­dos said po­lice were no­ti­fied of the protest. “It’s un­fair to ar­rest us, yet we have the right to protest against the bar­baric ac­tions of KDF of­fi­cers, who dug a trench across the road,” he said.
