UHURU/ RUTO on the spot again as police teargas nursery kids in Kisumu because of RAILA ODINGA

...more than 100 children aged between 5 and 6 years scampered for safety after police lobbed teargas canisters into their classes.

“I was in one of the classrooms when I heard a loud bang that was followed by screams.”

“Then I saw children running out of other classrooms which were filled with smoke.”

“I learnt later that teargas had been unleashed in the classrooms,” Adhiambo stated.


“Most of the pupils are traumatized.”

“The police officers’ actions threatened their lives,” she added.

This was the second time that the police under the Jubilee administration have teargassed school children after those of Langata Road Primary school, who were demonstrating against the grabbing of their playground by powerful people.
