Kisumu Town has on Tuesday 2nd February come to a standstill all thanks to members and supporters of the Communist Party of Kenya (CPK). This is a party that was formed in Kenya by veteran Johnstone Makau and is currently being chaired by Mwandawiro Mghanga.
CPK enjoys a very huge following more so in Nairobi, Kisumu and Mombasa and is mostly rallied by University Students. On Tuesday for example, CPK supporters took it to the streets of Kisumu Town which is considered as leader of opposition Raila Odinga's backyard whereby the were rallying for the rejection of the Building Bridges Initiative report.
This was all evident through the banners that they carried as the purported to backstab Raila Odinga on his own game since Raila Odinga together with President Uhuru Kenyatta are the main pioneers of the report.
These demonstrations seemed so peaceful and well organized in that they did not face the ruthless hands of the police who in many times are forced to teargas the demonstrators
