Kenyan Police Use Tear Gas To Disperse Rally Against Graft

Kenyan police have fired tear gas to disperse a protest march against government corruption.

The march was part of a protest movement by activists who want Kenya’s government to do more to stem what they charge is rampant graft within the administration.

Police arrested at least three protesters on Monday in the capital, Nairobi, when they broke up the demonstration. The group later reunited at another location and resumed the march.

The protest march coincided with celebrations marking 53 years since Kenya became independent.

A series of corruption scandals have put pressure on President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is seeking re-election next year.

Kenya is considered to be among the world’s most corrupt countries, ranking 139 out of 168 countries in a 2015 index by Transparency International.
