Just In: Govt Declares that Raila's Supporters Won't Be Allowed in Nairobi CBD

The government has made a bold announcement to Azimio One Kenya supporters ahead of mass protest.

The state also declared that Nairobi's Central Business District will be a restricted zone to Azimio supporters.

According to reports, police officers will block supporters and their leaders from accessing the areas where their protest was expected.

Azimio camp today sent a letter to police notifying them about their peaceful demonstration.

Hours later 50 university student alleged to be Azimio supporters were arrested in Nairobi while holding a press.

Raila had earlier asked his allies and supporters not to fear and that their protest was provided in the 2010 constitution.

The DP Rigathi Gachagua yesterday asked Kenyans to go about with their normal businesses and insisted that security agencies were on higher alert to counter any acts of lawlessness from the protesters.

But Mr Gachagua, termed the protests and mass action as a passing cloud, reiterating that the government was very stable and in full control.
