Workers of a Chinese road construction firm in Nakuru on Monday downed their tools protesting poor working conditions and poor pay.

The workers took to the streets where they blocked the Nakuru – Eldoret road with stones and twigs at the Soilo – Njoro turnoff, causing a major traffic snarl-up on the busy road.

Police later arrived and dispersed the irate protesters before clearing the road.

The protesting construction workers then moved to the company’s offices where they demanded a pay increase.

Police later arrived at the scene and dispersed the crowd of protesters.
