Kenya: Angry Traders Block Road in Nyahururu

Angry Nyahururu traders are engaging police in running battles as they protest increased fees imposed by council askaris. The traders have blocked the Nyahururu nyeri road and Nyahururu Nakuru road with bonfires.

Efforts to quell their anger by leaders and police in the area have been futile forcing council askaris to hide.
