A group of men and women, mostly Somalis were spotted in the central part of the city holding placards with messages directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta and Kenyans at large.
According to media reports, the protesters were expressing their anger over a recent alleged Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) airstrike in the Gedo region that is said to have killed a mother and her child.
A few days ago, KDF soldiers working under AMISOM in Somalia are said to have dropped missiles in the Gedo region, targeting Al-Shabaab militants who were hiding in the El Adde town, said to be their stronghold.
Unfortunately, the airstrike allegedly ended up killing a mother, her child as well as injuring five other children.
The matter was later reported to AMISOM, who launched investigations to unravel what happened.
Even though AMISOM is yet to release investigations findings, the Somalia government blamed KDF for the same.
In the protect video, participants were seen holding placards with several messages, including "justice for El Adde victims, Uhuru is a criminal," among others.
