Kenya police disperse demonstrators as Odinga tempers poll protest call

Kenya police disperse demonstrators as Odinga tempers poll protest callBy Katharine Houreld NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenyan police used bullets and teargas on Tuesday to disperse a small demonstration in Nairobi two days before elections, as the main opposition leader appeared to row back from a call for his supporters to hold protests during the vote. In the western city of Kisumu, around 2,000 demonstrators marched on the election board offices, witnesses said, responding to Raila Odinga’s appeal for protests against Thursday’s repeat presidential ballot. Odinga is boycotting the contest against incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta.
