Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has blamed police for the ongoing chaos amidst the Azimio la Umoja coalition mega protest.
Speaking on Monday, Sifuna accused the police of causing the chaos witnessed in the City as Azimio supporters took to the streets to protest the high cost of living.
"Police have turned what was peaceful #Maandamano into ugly confrontation," he said.
He also said that the arrest of Minority leaders from both houses of parliament was uncalled for.
"They (police) have arrested the Minority Leaders in both Houses of Parliament and a number of other leaders. This is totally uncalled for," Sifuna added.
Despite the police presence, the Senator said they will not relent.
Earlier in the day, Opiyo Wandayi, who is the National Assembly minority leader and his counterpart at the Senate Stewart Madzayo are among a section of legislators allied to the opposition who were arrested for leading protests in the City centre.
Leaders allied to Azimio One Kenya Alliance have called for the immediate release of their members.
On Sunday, Nairobi police commander boss Adamson Bunge had warned the Azimio supporters against holding the protests terming them illegal.
"We are in receipt of two requests that came late yesterday and today in the m morning. One was from Azimio la Umoja One Kenya and another from the Nairobi business community. The two groups intended to have peaceful demos. But for public safety none has been granted," he said.
Bungei said the two groups did not meet the threshold to be allowed to carry on with protest and warned of dire consequences for those who will break the law.
"Any person who will breach the peace or break the law during the procession shall be dealt with according to the law," he said.
"The public order act of 2012 is very clear, if a protest is not within the framework of that order then it is illegal."
