Kenyan activist Boniface Mwangi was treated for injuries at Kenyatta National Hospital and released following injuries he sustained while protesting in Nairobi.
Mwangi, who contested the Starehe parliamentary seat in the August 8th general election and lost to Charles Njagua Kanyi, says he and a group of demonstrators were marching towards Police Headquarters to deliver a petition to Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet against killings of protestors by police when they were stopped by police officers, tear-gassed, and clobbered.
“I have been treated at Kenyatta Hospital. X-ray done,nothing broken. Just a hematoma (a solid swelling of clotted blood within the tissues),” Mwangi wrote on his Twitter account after he was released from the hospital.
