All protesters arrested on Friday during the Saba Saba demonstration have been released on free police bond.
The protesters who include human rights activists have been released after the police failed to establish what crime they committed as revealed by Boniface Mwangi.
“All the young activists arrested on Friday in Nairobi at the Saba Saba March For Our Lives protests have been released. They hadn’t committed a crime. They were simply carrying placards. The police have given them free bond. Thank you to everyone who demanded for their release,” said Mwangi

The news follows a push and pull between the police and human rights activists who demanded the release of the protesters on Saturday before they were dispersed by Central Police officers who lobbied teargas in the air.
Among those present demanding their release was former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga who was escorted to safety during the incident.
