Youth take pigs to parliament


Two youths were this afternoon arrested at Parliament as they tried to hold a protest outside the August House.

Robert Mayanja and Norman Tumuhimbise, a law student at IUIU beat the security at Parliament’s main gate and stationed themselves in the parking lot with placards.

They came along with two piglets smeared with yellow paint and the inscriptions, MPigs; in protest of what they said was growing corruption and lack of jobs for youths.

The police arrested them and is still holding them at Parliament.

In May last year, protestors stormed the Kenyan parliament with blood stained piglets to show their anger at newly elected MPs demanding higher salaries.
