5 things to always carry when going for a protest

17 May 2016, 13:16 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I am learning a lot as I watch clips from yesterday. I am also sure that University of Nairobi students are also armed with their pencils, pens and notebooks taking notes. I don’t blame you; I am seeing where you are learning your tactics from.

Since I am not interested in being a politician, I assume if I ever attend a demonstration it is because I am going to listen to other people. But I am the scared type, the way it seems, Kenyans don’t know how to be peaceful, I am at home if any of these things are happening.

I am seeing people complaining on social media about people being beaten, but where were you? You were also at home because you know, if you don’t want to meet GSU, you stay at home. Don’t go loot and say, ‘Oh, I have the right to beat a fellow Kenyan because I am angry.’

I am telling you, wait until it is someone close to you or you who is being beaten by a supposed high school dropout who is angry he does not have anything in life and now they think they have a right to you.  Someone was giving that as an example of privilege so we do not understand.

A drop out is here tarmacking and selling eggs to make a living and you want to beat people and loot because you are not letting go of your pride and looking at options. Kenyans, you are an amusing lot. My dears, you will look for those GSUs.

Anyway, I took notes of what I should carry in case I am ‘peacefully demonstrating’.


This has to be the first one. Stones in the pocket, stones in my back pocket, stones in my bra. By the way what was that person being stepped on by the GSU doing with a stone where a wallet should be? I have an answer; ‘peacefully demonstrating’.

These are for hurling at the passersby I am angry with for not being on my side. They are also used for hurling at people’s cars, hurling at window shops so that I can get into the store and do some ‘shopping’ and ‘borrowing’. Finally, this is important; they are for hurling at the police. This is very crucial, you just throw those stones and buy some time as you get away and they duck.

Clubs/ Rungu/ Sticks

Those people were already armed. They came prepared for their purpose. Someone is saying that those people were being peaceful up until the police started beating them. So why did they have these things already? For ‘peaceful demonstration’! I saw a group yesterday surrounding a man and beating him up. You will probably need this to protect yourself as a passerby but in case you and your group feel like beating people-you can join in. Because that is fine –for ‘peaceful demonstration’! 


We need bags. I told you we will be ‘borrowing’ and ‘shopping’ before the police come. You will need a place to carry all your stuff. Then in case you get away, you can hide all your ammunition in it and pretend you were not part of it.

Water and Bandana

We cannot afford tear gas masks so water is to wash out the eyes and bandana to tie around my nose area. Those guys will have nothing on me.

Sport shoes

These are for running away. Just wear sport shoes. Also if you are a woman, you will need something for your hair in case you get hit by water.
