Hundreds of police officers drafted into Kenya First Lady’s Beyond Zero Marathon Security on Sunday as undercover runners and sleuths, in an attempt to ward off anticipated anti-corruption crusaders intending to use the occasion to hold peaceful protests.
Sources further indicate that police have been given express orders to maintain public order by dispersing any unauthorized meetings/ congregations/ gatherings within the precincts of the marathon, including detaining protesters intending to “bring Beyond Zero HM into disrepute”.
Security officers from satellite towns of capital city have been ferried into Nairobi for reinforcement during the First Lady Half Marathon on Sunday. Police on high alert over possible “interruptions”. Public parks and “open spaces” will particularly be under watch.
