PEOPLE HELD DEMO, BURNT TYRES
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.
