PROTEST WAS ILLEGAL – POLICE
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.
