Tension In Mathare As Angry Youths Carry Remains Of Burnt Matatu To Raila’s Office


matatuForward Travellers Matatu Owners are currently making their way to Raila’s Capital Hill Office to present the burnt matatu.

The Sacco members who have closed operation today are taking the matatu that was burnt during CORD demonstrations in a bid to seek compensation.

Meanwhile a group of youth have blocked Juja Road in demonstrations against the burning of the matatu.

Residents in the area have been forced to stay indoors and close businesses to avoid damage and injuries.

At some point along Jogoo Road, the rowdy youth blocked matatu heading to town and stole from the passangers.

The youth are said to be holding counter protests against CORD demanding that the coalition pays for the matatu that was burnt in the area on Monday by their supporters.

A group of CORD supporters were however awaiting them at the gates of capital hill to prevent them from storming into Raila’s office.
