Journalists Attacked by Knife-brandishing Gang in Kibra

A knife-wielding gang has attacked international and local journalists in Kibra, Nairobi County.

Reports indicate that the gang started by pelting stones at the reporters around DO area. A number of reporters are said to have sustained injuries.

“As we were covering the ongoing demonstrations, protesters had lit bonfires and we were watching the protests unfold when we were attacked,” a journalist identified as Jase Ndung’u told Citizen Digital. 

“The gang had pretended to be part of the protesters but it turned out that they were actually armed.”

The gang was apparently pretending to be part of a group taking part in Azimio la Umoja protests.

The journalists are lost their equipment during the scuffle.

Meanwhile, police are engaged in running battles with protesters in certain parts of the city including Kibra and Mathare slums.

The Central Business District (CBD) has remained calm with a heavy police presence. Unlike last week, opposition leaders are yet to show up for the demos.
