Kenya Prohibits Protests Until Electoral Issues Are Resolved

Kenya has banned protests to demand electoral reforms until all contentious issues are resolved after two people were killed in opposition marches on Monday, Interior Secretary Joseph Nkaissery said.

The opposition Coaliton for Reforms and Democracy has staged protests in the capital, Nairobi, and other cities since April to demand the resignation of officials at the electoral agency over alleged corruption.

“The government has banned demonstrations beginning today whether it’s CORD or anybody else,” Nkaissery told reporters in Nairobi flanked by Attorney General Githu Muigai and Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet.
