PEO­PLE HELD DEMO, BURNT TYRES

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Judiciary -

Wit­ness Wa­fula told the court he found peo­ple demon­strat­ing and burn­ing tyres near the Kon­dele mar­ket in Kisumu. The de­mon­stra­tors were on one side of the road, while po­lice of­fi­cers were on the other. The two men were among pro­test­ers, who were taunt­ing and mak­ing faces at the anti-riot po­lice of­fi­cers sent to con­tain the protests at the height of the vi­o­lence. The vi­o­lence erupted be­cause of the dis­puted pres­i­den­tial re­sults of the 2007 gen­eral elec­tion in which Mwai Kibaki was de­clared the win­ner.
