Police and protesters outside the Supreme Court in Nairobi were forced to run for their lives after they were attacked by bees. One person, a disabled beggar at the premises, was injured after being stung by the bees that started attacking them at around 11.40 am.
He was evacuated by the St John’s attendants and taken to the hospital. The police and protesters had to stand at a safe distance away from the Supreme Court gates.
An eye witness said the bees went on the rampage after their beehive was disturbed when police lobbed teargas canisters to disperse a crowd that had gathered outside the court.
This incident took place as the judges were rendering their ruling that nullified August 8 presidential elections. There have been protests by Jubilee supporters outside the Supreme Court since Monday.
