CORD leader Raila Odinga Monday afternoon led protests on the city streets accompanied by Senators Moses Wetangula, James Orengo and KANU Secretary General Nick Salat among other leaders.

Contrary to previous demonstrations where they were confronted and stopped by police, the group was allowed to march through Kenyatta Avenue and headed to Anniversary Towers and later preceded to Uhuru Highway without any incident.

The group took to the streets after the High Court earlier in the day declined to stop the protests against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, instead ordering police to provide them with security.

Justice Joseph Onguto ruled that the demonstrators are exercising their democratic right under the Constitution and must be allowed to picket.
