, KISUMU, Kenya, Oct 2 – A standoff between police and protesters was witnessed on Monday in Kondele as the former sought to keep the latter from the town centre.

The confrontation led to the paralysis of public transportation as business owners kept their premises shuttered.

The demonstrators resorted to pelting the officers with stoned who in turn responded by firing in the air and lobbing tear gas.

The county residents took to the streets in support of Opposition leader Raila Odinga’s demand for reforms at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission before a fresh presidential poll can be held as ordered by the Supreme Court.
