NASA Supporters Unveil “Peoples Republicof Kenya” Flag
Opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) has revived the secession debate that dominated the headlines shortly after the August 8th elections.
On Monday, the opposition supporters in some parts of the country displayed the “Peoples Republic of Kenya” flag as they staged anti- Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) protests.
Nasa leader Raila Odinga said the demos will be held twice a week; on Monday and Friday to force a section of officials out of office before the October 26th repeat poll.
In Nairobi, protesters displayed a miniature People’s Republic of Kenya flags as they marched towards IEBC headquarters before they were dispersed by police.
NASA chief strategist, David Ndii had in August ignited secession debate after unveiling a petition of “Self Determination”. The debate, however, faded away weeks later.
The protesters seem to have reawakened the debate by unveiling the ‘proposed’ flag for Peoples Republic, which resembles that of Africa’s youngest nation, South Sudan.
