A swam of police officers have been deployed outside the IEBC offices at Anniversary Towers where Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has offices, ahead of the planned CORD protest.
The officers are under instructions not to allow any protester near the premises. Police want the organisers of the protest to cancel it and instead seek an alternative solution to their problems.
Cord plans a march on the offices to force the commission out ahead of the 2017 elections. The protest was set to start today morning and Cord co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka had asked their supporters to turn up in large numbers for the peaceful event until the team leaves.
But the commission has refused to leave office and instead asked the politicians to use legal means to remove them. Nairobi police boss Japheth Koome said they would not allow the planned protest and has asked the planners to seek alternative ways of addressing their grievances.
