Teargas as police seal off Jacaranda grounds in Nairobi

Police are battling to stop a planned National Super Alliance (Nasa) prayer rally for victims of police brutality at Jacaranda grounds in Embakasi, Nairobi.

The officers in full anti-riot gear on Tuesday threw teargas everywhere, including residential estates, and roughed up whoever they came across.

They started by sealing off the venue before unleashing their arsenal on a group of youths who were marching to the grounds.

Nasa supporters later regrouped and blocked roads, making it impossible for motorists to pass.

But even before the running battles started, a close look at the venue indicated that the requiem mass for victims of police brutality, which was to be led by Mr Raila Odinga, was doomed.

Nasa has organised a memorial to remember victims of police brutality during the electioneering period.
