• Winnie Odinga also uploaded a video showing the huge smoke from tear gas and said that on Monday she was shot with tear gas until she survived.
The daughter of the leader of the Azimio La Umoja party leader, Winnie Odinga has opened up about how she went through a difficult time during the second phase of the protest on Monday in the streets of Kawangware and Kibera.
Winnie, who was in the procession of the protest, uploaded several pictures of her participating in the protest from the top of her car and claimed that the police fired tear gas at her.
Winnie also uploaded a video showing the huge smoke from tear gas and said that on Monday she was shot with so much tear gas she got 'saved'.
However, she insisted that the amount of tear gas couldn't stop them from continuing the protest that her father said would grow, taking place every Monday and Thursday. Winnie wrote on her Instagram page.
“Leo nimekula, nimeoga, nimekunywa na nimeokoka na teargas. Bado mapambano. Unaweza kuuwa wanaharakati lakini huwezi kuua harakati zenyewe." (Today I ate, showered, drank and got saved in teargas. Still the struggle continues. You can kill activists but you cannot kill the movement itself)
Contrary to the first phase of the protest on Monday last week, this time the number of police officers seemed to increase as the patrol was strengthened in many parts of the city of Nairobi.
The main objective was to prevent Odinga and his entourage from entering the central areas of the city of Nairobi.
