IN PICTURES: Police disrupt NASA gathering outside Supreme Court
A section of National Super Alliance (Nasa) leaders accompanied by their supporters were on Sunday, August 8 were blocked from holding a public gathering at the Supreme Court of Kenya building.
The opposition coalition had earlier insisted that its supporters would be holding a peaceful assembly outside the Supreme Court despite a police order against the gathering.
The supporters were met with heavy police presence who had also erected barricades on key streets near the Supreme Court to keep away the public and any trouble-makers.
The coalition, through its affiliate Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), says Kenyans have a right to assemble and worship anywhere.
Here is how the incident in pictures.
Opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) supporters who heeded calls by their leaders to hold prayers and vigils at the precincts of the Supreme Court making their way to the venue.
NASA supporters upon reaching the entrance of the Supreme Court were shell-shocked as security was tight with police officers manning the gates.
Nasa supporters still managed to hold prayers outside the gate of the Supreme Court, along City Hall Way in Nairobi. Nasa Principals were nowhere to be seen though, with MPs Opiyo Wandayi, Simba Arati, Ken Okoth, ODM Chairman John Mbadi and Homabay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga leading them in the prayers for victory in the presidential petition that they have filed before the court.
This man stole the show with his well-timed dance moves.
