Those injured in the confrontation said police resorted to live bullets after their teargas got exhausted.

They vowed to continue with the protests on Monday and ‘fight for Raila’.

Raila Odinga who is the opposition chief has been leading protests every Monday since April 25 to push for the ouster of the electoral body (IEBC) commissioners over integrity issues.

Violence has been witnessed in the last two episodes, calling for the intervention of the religious and international bodies who condemned the police for using excessive force on protesters and urged dialogue over the matter.

On Wednesday, CORD agreed to give peace and dialogue a chance and called off next week’s demos.
