Kenyans have this afternoon reacted after members of parliament allied to Azimio and their supporters have been dispersed using tear gas. This was after they stormed the offices of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) at anniversary towers in Nairobi County. The police moved into action to ensure they doesn't enter these offices by stopping them outside the main entrance.
These Azimio legislators are demonstrating over the recent move that was taken by IEBC that saw deputy chief executive officer Ruth Kulundu interdicted.
On their part, these leaders are calling on the commission to reinstate the officer with immediate effect hence the cause for demonstrations that they have conducted today.
As usual, this incident has made a section of Kenyans to react as shown below.
"So what is azimio fighting for this time round?.....si I remember them chest thumping that is no longer their role since they would be the government, just days before elections?," reacted Harry Son.
"Elections are over. As an employer/employee Iebc and their employees have structures to sort out their issues. I doubt whether street protests and politics is one of them," reacted Cassius Lumwamu.
"Already we have been congratulated for being the most peaceful country in the world please don't do this now," reacted Stevie Maina.
