The last day of outlawed protests in
Kenyasaw a great deal of bloodshed in the slum of Kibera. MSF has reported 15 gunshot wounds, and three deaths at the time of writing. Police and military used excessive force on demonstraters after they destroyed a portion of the train track route that leads to Nairobi , effectively cutting off supply routes and further crippling the economy. They used tear gas and live ammunition on unarmed protesters. Uganda
When I arrived in Kibera it was a virtual war zone. General Service Units (GSU), or the Red Berets as they are sometimes referred to, and Administrative Police (AP) were firing live rounds at will into a neighborhood of Kibera, injuring innocent bystanders, one of whom was in his home. They seemed rather to be enjoying themselves, displaying a kind of bloodthirstiness which I had not as yet witnessed.
