Three people were hit by a vehicle during the anti-IEBC demos held in Nairobi on Monday. The driver of the van tried to run away from demonstrators who were hell bent on stealing from him, but he instead ran over three demonstrators. Another demonstrator was shot in the incident.

The IEBC demos persisted on Monday after the first week of demonstrations ended last week. The demonstrations were more heated this time in Nairobi, due to the incident. The supporters were led by Esther Passaris and Gladys Wanga, and Embakais East MP Babu Owino was also present.

The issue of contention is the call for reforms at the electoral body, with protestors calling for the resignation of IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba.
