Police officers on Monday were forced to lob teargas to disperse Members of Parliament allied to Azimio la Umoja One Kenya and their supporters.
The leaders and their supporters held protests outside the Anniversary Towers, a building housing Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, IEBC offices in Nairobi.
The leaders defied a police order that they disperse their supporters, therefore forcing the use of teargas.
In the ensuing melee, the leaders were caught up, fleeing the scene before they could get audience with IEBC as gates leading to the Anniversary Towers remained closed.
The Azimio leaders are protesting the interdiction of IEBC deputy CEO Ruth Kulundu over “witch hunt from the commission.”
The leaders want Kulundu reinstated to her position even as they accuse IEBC of victimizing officials deemed friendly to the party.
