Kisumu residents have taken to the streets in solidarity with their NASA counterparts in Nairobi who want to force IEBC officials out of office through protests. Among those NASA chief Raila Odinga wants out, for allegedly bungling the August presidential election, is Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba.
The Nairobi demonstrations are expected to take place outside the electoral agency's Anniversary Towers' offices, despite chairman Wafula Chebukati's plea against it. In Kisumu, the protesters marched peacefully waving placards reading 'Chiloba must go'.
