Protesters are taking to the streets in various US cities to express anger over the killing of an unarmed civilian, George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota early this week.
Floyd, a black American man, died on Monday in Minneapolis after a police officer put his knee on his neck for nearly 10 minutes in an incident captured on camera.
The officer, Derek Chauvin, was arrested on Friday and charged with third-degree murder but this has done little to quell the unrest around the US.
A video showing protestors in the US chanting ‘haki yetu’—a popular Swahili slogan used during demonstrations in Kenya—has emerged on social media.
In the clip, a man believed to be a Kenyan national living in the US, is heard telling a group of protestors that in Swahili they say ‘haki yetu’.
The man shouts, “We can say it in Swahili, we say haki yetu.” The protestors repeat after him.
