Boniface Mwangi’s nonpartisan demonstrations turned chaotic as police clamped down on protesters. Once again police brutality was witnessed as Boniface himself suffered injuries.

The rights activist was demonstrating against police killings witnessed across the country. The Thursday demo followed a report by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch highlighting 33 deaths caused by police in Nairobi alone.

Boniface Mwangi suffers burn mark

Boniface Mwangi suffered a burn mark on his chest after an anti-riot police officer lobbed a tear-gas canister straight at him. The rights activist and his Team Courage protesters had assembled at Freedom Corner when anti-riot police moved in to disperse them.

The protesters were dispersed from Uhuru park after police teargassed them. They regrouped at Jevanjee Garden but then again police were on their trail.
