Josephat Makori is the name of the policeman who threw a teargas during Martha Karua's rally in Kisii. The security officer was arrested and he has been charged with attempt to injure Kenyans by an explosive. Josephat Makori will be detained for 10 days pending conclusion of the investigation. He is however yet to explain why he decided to throw the teargas.

Martha Karua and other top officials managed to escape unhurt thanks to their security detail. The action has been high condemned by Kenyans and the law will surely take its course.
