NASA supporters defy protest ban order as marches begin in Mombasa and Kisumu

Demonstrators have started gathering in Kisumu around Kondele area where they have blocked roads amid heavy security presence.

They have already set up bonfires on the main roads, although they have not started marching to the city centre where heavily armed police officers are patrolling.

The same situation was witnessed in Mombasa where opposition Members of Parliament led their supporters in marching down the town streets.

Nyanza Regional Commissioner Wilson Njega stated that police will deal firmly with demonstrators who will defy the ban to hold protests in the city centre which has been the theatre of running battles in the past.
