This is after tension gripped the area after a section of residents protested the declaration of Kenya Kwanza Leader William Ruto as president.

Mathare Deputy County Commissioner Jack Obuo says that normalcy has however returned and residents have resumed work.

“We had a little tension here last night. We conducted patrols and calmed the boys and everything seems to be fine today,” said Obuo.

“We have however not stopped conducting patrols. We are continuing with patrols to arrest any situation that might arise,” he said.

Obuo has in the meantime urged political leaders in the area to also do their part and calm their followers.
