A number of Saba saba protesters have been arrested at the Central Business District along Harambee Avenue.
The protesters who were carrying placards were bundled into police vehicles by police officers who were keeping vigil.
The protests were supposed to be a build up for the Azimio saba saba rally set to take place at the Kamukunji grounds.
Police have in the meantime given okay to the Kamukunji rally that Azimio leaders are expected to attend.
