Kenya: Boy feared dead in opposition protests

The symbolic swearing in of Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga as the "people's president" has raised political temperatures in the country, with the worldwide community now calling for calm and respect of the rule of law.

Meanwhile, the United States also expressed concern over the move to shut down TV stations, urging the government's to respect freedom of expression and implement court orders calling for the restoration of television broadcasts.

Kenyan opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has been "sworn in" as the "people's president" by thousands of his supporters in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, earlier this week.

The National Resistance Movement "General" Miguna Miguna was arrested on Friday morning, shortly after he raised the alarm on a police raid at his home.

The High Court, however, on Thursday suspended the Government's directive to shut down the three leading TV stations in the country pending a full hearing of the case that was filed by Activist Okiya Omtatah on Thursday.

Omtatah later told Reuters that the courier he had sent to deliver the papers to Kenya's communications authority had been detained by men in dark suits who said they were police but refused to provide identification.

They had defied orders by President Uhuru Kenyatta himself, who summoned media bosses last Friday and "expressly threatened to shut down" any station broadcasting the event, the Kenya Editors' Guild said in a statement. "If the government does not comply with a court order that is so clear, it will raise questions as to the wider rule of law".

"Uhuru Kenyatta was elected as President of the Republic of Kenya on October 26, 2017 in a poll that was upheld by Kenya's Supreme Court".

The U.S. Department of State, in a statement issued by Ms Heather Nauert, Department Spokesperson, said: "We reject actions that undermine Kenya's Constitution and the rule of law", she wrote.

Syria has denied using illegal chemicals. "We are even more concerned about the possibility of sarin use, (but) I don't have the evidence,"Mattis said".

During the protests in Nairobi, a 14-year old boy was shot by police as they engaged the opposition supporters.

But 28-year-old construction worker Edward Chege said some of the broadcasters were partisan.

The four media houses were still off-air on Friday.
