Teargas, Arrests Disrupt Kenya's Saba Saba Protests

Conveners of the protests have said they were denied permission to hold demonstrations yet the Constitution only requires them to notify the police of their intention. July 7, 1990 was the day on which nationwide protests took place in a demand for multiparty democracy from the Daniel Arap Moi regime and the protestors hence took to the streets to mark the movement's 30th anniversary.

Fr Gabriel Dolan, of civil society group Haki Yetu, tells Mombasa residents the Saba Saba story, during an exhibition along Nyerere Road, as the movement marked its 30th anniversary on July 7, 2020.
