Kenyan police disperse protesters in port city of Mombasa

The fate of Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and the Deputy party leader to Raila Odinga was unknown by the time of going to the press. 

Kenyan police in the port city of Mombasa fired teargas to disperse hundreds of protesters demanding the removal of an electoral oversight body which opposition parties want scrapped, a Reuters witness said. The witness said police had earlier been seen patrolling the streets in riot gear, while businesses remained closed for fear of looting. The Reuters witness saw about three hundred protesters waving placards reading “IEBC must go home now”, a reference to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

IEBC chair Ahmed Issack Hassan — and his commissioners — must go. They have over stayed their welcome.
