CORD leaders intervene after police arrest youth at Uhuru Park

07 July 2014, 14:45

Nairobi - Two people have been injured following running battles between rival youth attending the Saba Saba rally at Uhuru Park in Nairobi.

Running battles ensued after the youth hurled stones at National Youth Service personnel demand the release of a colleague who had been arrested for alleged misconduct.

Senators James Orengo and Anyang Nyongo later intervened and negotiated for the release of the youth.

“We have spoken with the police and the young man who had been arrested has now been released,” Orengo told the angry youth at Uhuru Park.

Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, and the other Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) luminaries were yet to arrive at the venue as the skirmishes ensued.

Thousands of Kenyans converged at Uhuru Park on Monday for an anti-government demonstration in the capital city.

Political and ethnic tensions preceded the event with more than 20 people killed at the Coast in yet more clashes right ahead of the rally.
