NAIROBI – The protests by the National Super Alliance [Nasa] that were scheduled for start on Tuesday have been called to enable the opposition visit its supporters injured by the police across the country.
In a statement, Nasa leader Raila Odinga’s spokesman Dennis Onyango said they will take the day off to sympathise with the injured supporters.
“This is a temporary step to enable the coalition to attend to the supporters who were brutalised and hurt and families that lost loved ones today (Monday) after police and State-protected goons descended on protesters and Nasa leaders,” the statement read.
He, however, said the nationwide demonstrations will resume on Wednesday. The coalition has condemned police for using excessive force in quelling protesters. During the Monday protest in Kisumu, a student was shot dead.
