Kisumu State House security beefed up

While members of the opposition Azimio la Umoja One Kenya party kept up the protests across the city in preparation for Monday's large-scale protest scheduled by coalition party leader Raila Odinga, security has been stepped up near State House in Kisumu.

Police officials on Friday built barricades outside the entry to the state lodge along Jomo Kenyatta Road with hundreds of anti-riot personnel, a bigger number as contrasted to prior instances.

As this was going on, followers of Azimio once again demonstrated against President William Ruto, with the organizers of the marches warning the young against the damaging property.

Because of the increased security, protesters changed their course and marched down Oginga Odinga Street rather than going in the direction of the State Lodge, where they were welcomed by Bunge la Wananchi.

Seth Kanga, the MCA for Market Milimani and the ODM chairman of the Kisumu Central Constituency, spearheaded the protests and instructed the youth to demonstrate peacefully.

Just a small group of MCAs and activists led the public demonstrations on Friday; Kisumu County Deputy Governor Dr Mathew Owili and Kisumu Central MP Joshua Oron, who had been in charge of the marches, were clearly absent.

Speaking to the Azimio followers, Kanga said that the Nairobi march was irresistible and added that on Saturday, before their journey to the capital, they will have prayers at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Sports Field.
