Nasa calls off Friday street protests
NASA coalition has called off the peaceful demonstration it had called for Friday in Nairobi.
Siaya Senator James Orengo said the cancellation was because of the on-going debate in the county Assemblies for the creation of a People’s Assembly to help Kenyans chart the way out of the electoral impasses in the country.
“The National Super Alliance wishes to notify its supporters that the peaceful protests for electoral justice that had been scheduled to take place in Nairobi tomorrow, November 10, 2017 have been postponed until further notice,” he said in a statement.
“This is to enable the Coalition’s leaders and supporters concentrate on and support the initiative that is intended to have the people exercise their sovereignty directly and chart their future through a People’s Assembly.”
He said a new date would be announced in due course.
NASA is pushing for reforms at the IEBC and has demanded free and fair elections in three months.
