Protesters stormed the Senate and National Assembly buildings, setting fire to parts of the parliamentary precincts.

Kalonzo further vowed to document every case with the intention of suing those responsible for the deaths witnessed during the protests, at the ICC, terming their actions as crimes against humanity.

“We are going to document every case perhaps even revisit the International Criminal Court and this time, talk to them about atrocities committed against the Kenyan people,” he revealed.
