Security officers have been deployed to areas surrounding State House in Nairobi and Kisumu in what seems to be a precaution against likely protests on Thursday by the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition.

In Nairobi, at least two security officers were sent to guard roadblocks erected on several routes, including State House Road and the route between Kenya Comfort Suites and Ralph Bunche Road.

Another team of two was stationed at State House Gate C, which is often left unguarded, to control traffic.

Another roadblock was erected on Processional Way, with a police car strategically placed at the junction with State House Road. Yet another blockade was at Crawford Business Park and Statehouse Girls, with six officers guarding it.

In Kisumu, police cordoned off the road leading to State Lodge. Jomo Kenyatta highway was blocked from the wee hours of Wednesday morning as motorists were forced to use alternative routes.
