Nairobi food protests

Kenyan police have fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of people demonstrating against the soaring cost of food.

Protesters in the capital Nairobi carried placards demanding the government cut the cost of basic Kenyan staples like maize flour. The police said the demonstration was illegal and four arrests were made.

Food prices in the east African country have risen sharply since the recent political crisis led to shortages. December’s disputed presidential election triggered violence across Kenya, leaving 1,500 people dead and some 600,000 people displaced.

Let’s wait, we might see food clashes all around the world with the speed oil prices increase!
