Teargas as police disperse Kenyans at Freedom Corner, Nairobi protesting Covid-19 funds theft
The protesters were unfortunately teargassed by the police whereas some were arrested and taken to Central Police Station. However, the protesters condemned the use of force by police officers in spite the riots being peaceful.
It is also interesting while unfortunate that up to date Kenyans have not seen the country’s investigative agencies swinging into action over the alleged Covid-19 funds and donations graft.
As HAKI Africa, we would like to call on the DCI and EACC to move with speed and apprehend the suspects and let justice take its cause.
