Protesters in Kenyan cities today threw stones at police officers during a second round of demonstrations called by the main opposition leader against a raft of tax hikes.
It was reported that Police officers fired teargas to disperse protesters in the capital Nairobi, the port city of Mombasa and several other towns.
Intense clashes took place on the expressway connecting Nairobi to the main airport, where protesters lit bonfires and toppled fencing. The expressway said toll services had been halted at three stations.
At least six people were killed last Friday during protests against the taxes, which are contained in a finance bill signed into law by President William Ruto last month.
