Protesters camp outside office of the president
25 November 2014, 13:31
Nairobi - Protesters have camped outside the office of the president demanding the sacking of Interior CS Joseph Ole Lenku over increased insecurity Tuesday.
The protesters in their hundreds are seeking Ole Lenku's removal from office due to the undending cases of insecurity in the country and countless deaths of innocent Kenyans.
The latest attack in Mandera on a Nairobi bound bus over the weekend saw 28 people mercilessly killed by what is thought to be Al Shabaab militia.
They chanted 'Ole Lenku, Kimaiyo must go' as they tore through the city streets.
Led by activist Boniface Mwangi, they called for swift action on security matters in the country.

" We need change from the top brass. People have been sleeping on the job and need to be removed or they should lift their performance," Lucy Njeri a protester said.
Deputy President William Ruto has already said that action will be taken but Ole Lenku and Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo will not be sacked.
" The natural reaction is to call for the sacking of people here and there. That will be a topic for another day, he said in a press conference over the weekend on the matter.
