Over 50 pupils were rushed to hospital after the police lobbed teargas in their classroom in Kangemi.
The pupils of KihumbuIni Primary School in Kangemi were in their classrooms when the tear gas was lobbed.
The majority of them allegedly shocked after they were overwhelmed by the teargas fumes but so far no casualties have been reported.
According to one of the locals, the teargas canister was allegedly thrown into the classroom by police officers who were dispersing residents who turned up for the Azimio protests earlier today.
When reached for comment, Eagle Nursing Home hospital owner Dr Aron Shikuku confirmed the same to the Star.
He said that the learners were over 50 and were brought to the facility in ambulances.
"Yes, there were over 50 learners. We have managed to control the situation. The majority of them are now in stable condition," said Shikuku.
Nairobi police boss Adamson Bungei said the protesters had converged near the school resulting in the tragedy.
“The tear gas may have found its way to the classroom as the police tried to disperse the group. We are looking into it. The children have been attended to by medics,” he said
