Tension engulfed the Karagira region in Naivasha after a section of bodaboda youths and fishermen stormed on the road to demonstrate on what they sayed to be harrassment from the security guards of the region. According to them, they claimed that their colleague was shot dead by a coast guard officer at around 5.00am on wednesday. The angry mob also blocked the Moi South road to demand security and access to the Lake Naivasha fishing grounds. It was reported that one bus was brought down in flames after they set fire on it. They also claimed that the security guards uses excessive force while handling the fishermen. This comes few months after the government of Kenya deployed the coastguards in the region over claims of increased theft of the fishing nets. They also argued that the number of illegal fishermen in the region has increased in the recent days and the security guards has not concentrated in arresting them rather punishing the real fishermen.
