Police Clobber, Teargas Striking Kasarani Residents (VIDEO)
Police officers are accused of using excessive force on Kasarani residents following the ongoing matatu strike that entered day three today.
The striking operators engaged the officers in running battles with some retaliating using stones.
One female conductor who spoke to Ghetto Radio News says that some innocent Kasarani residents who were clobbered by police suffered injuries.
She says that a woman and her child are among those who were clobbered by the officers deployed in the area.
Residents from Kasarani have for three days now been trekking long distances to commute to work and schools after the matatu operators went on strike due to the poor state of the roads.
The residents claim that they have been forced to part with a lot of cash some amounting to Ksh. 400 per day.
The operators had vowed not to go back to work until the relevant authorities heed to their cries.
