WATCH: Kenyan opposition leader Odinga caught up in heavy teargas during protests

26 April 2016, 21:57

Nairobi - Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga was caught up in teargas fired by police during protests against the electoral body, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Odinga was in the company of other opposition leaders, including Kalonzo Munsyoka and Moses Wetang’ula, who were both co-principals of the opposition coalition CORD.

According to reports, one teargas canister landed on Odinga's feet, forcing him to flee.

Thousands of CORD supporters who had gathered outside IEBC offices in Nairobi also ran for their safety.

They were trying to break the gate of the building that hosted the IEBC secretariat when police fired teargas at them.

The protesters demanded the ouster of IEBC commissioners over alleged malpractices in the last general election.

The electoral body however, issued an apology to CORD over the teargas incident, but urged CORD to avoid unorthodox approaches.
