Langata Primary Students Lobbed with Teargas Trying to Protect their Playground (PICTURES)

(Last Updated On: January 19, 2015)

Today the mood quickly turned sour at Langata Primary school where a demonstration was to be held to protect their playground. The Langata Road Primary School playground has been grabbed by a group of known professional land grabbers acting on behalf of a very senior politician in the Jubilee government.

The grabbing took place over the Christmas holiday when around 50 young men were hired from Kibera slums to guard construction workers who worked day and night to fence off the school playground. A front man in the grabbing was also involved in the 2010 Langata Cemetery scandal where taxpayers lost 260million shillings.

Here are pictures of the scene at Langata Primary school this Monday;
