Nairobi – Police opened fire and lobbed teargas at
thousands of youth who were marching to the Jumuia Conference Centre in
Limuru for a meeting organised to counter another held there by GEMA
leaders two weeks ago.
The meeting dubbed Limuru 2B was organised to counter resolutions
made by supporters of Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and his ICC
co-accused William Ruto whose allies had converged in Eldoret also two
weeks ago under the KAMATUSA tribal grouping.
A group of youth led by veteran lawyer Paul Muite and activist
Ngunjiri Wambugu—the meeting convener—who had marched to the venue were
blocked by police and decided to leave peacefully.
