Opposition Protesters Flee Tear Gas in Central Nairobi

Protesters gathered in central Nairobi, Kenya, on Monday, March 20, after the country’s opposition leader called on his supporters to take to the streets to demand transparency on the election of President William Ruto.

Local media reported that tear gas was used to disperse protesters in the capital.

Raila Odinga, the Kenyan opposition leader, had called on his supporters to take to the streets, after rejecting the election victory of President William Ruto in August last year.

The protests were deemed illegal by police on Sunday, but this did not prevent unrest in the capital. Credit: @BarrenThoughts via Storyful
