Crowd tear-gassed

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

NAIROBI: Po­lice fired tear­gas at op­po­si­tion ac­tivists in Kenya’s cap­i­tal yes­ter­day as demon­stra­tors, who also protested in three other cities, called for the sack­ing of elec­tion board of­fi­cials in­volved in Au­gust’s can­celled pres­i­den­tial vote.

Crowds also gath­ered in the west­ern op­po­si­tion strong­hold of Kisumu and the port of Mom­basa. Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta, who had won by 1.4 mil­lion votes, has ac­cused the Supreme Court of bring­ing the coun­try close to “ju­di­cial chaos”. – Reuters
