Kenya forbids all street protests to protect private businesses
23 October, 2017
Kenya's government has officially forbidden all demonstrations in Mombasa, Nairobi, and Kisumu. According to Fred Matiang'i, the Interior Minister, the ban was aimed at defending both Kenyans and their possessions.

Opposition supporters initiated numerous protests in three principal cities. They have already resulted in aggressive clashes with police.
As TUKO informs, Kenyan opposition is pushing for electoral changes before a new election is held. This week, their much-respected leader Raila Odinga quitted of the 26 October poll. As it was
earlier informed, the Supreme Court had canceled President Kenyatta's win in the August election, after it found that the election commission did not follow both the electoral laws and the constitution.

The Interior Minister also told that the ban was not meant to limit the constitutional rights but that it was agreed on after security authorities found that there was the impending danger. Fred Matiang'i also added that he had already received numerous complaints from the business community about the depressing effects the protests were having on their businesses.
