  • National Super Alliance (NASA) has announced that it shall deploy a new tactic during anti-IEBC demos starting on Friday to reduce incidences of looting as witnessed during Wednesday's protests.

    Dagoretti North MP, Simba Arati, promised the supporters that the Alliance will start providing bread and soda before they embark on the daily demos.

    He announced that a well-wisher had vowed to supply NASA supporters with 20,000 loaves of bread and a similar number of bottles of water and sodas for the protests.

    Arati, however, did not disclose the identity of the well-wisher.


    The action comes after a section of NASA supporters were caught on camera allegedly stealing and destroying several properties in Nairobi Central Business District (CBD).

    In a video making rounds, some protesters are seen snatching sodas from an unidentified outlet as well as destroying vehicles that were packed within the city center.

    In response to theft claims, the police asked anyone who had been robbed or suffered loses during the protests to report to the nearest police station.

    On his part, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko condemned the incident urging the authorities to take action against the perpetrators.

    "As the Governor of Nairobi, I condemn in the strongest terms possible the hooliganism witnessed today in the name of peaceful demonstrations. There is no law in Kenya that protects those determined to destroy other people's property and infringe on their right to earn a living.

    "I urge all security agencies to move with speed, arrest and prosecute those behind this senseless barbarism," he lamented.

    While addressing the supporters at Uhuru Park, Siaya Senator James Orengo declared that the Opposition will stage the demonstrations daily starting next week until reforms are made in the electoral commission.
