Kenyans living in the United States were not left behind as thousands of people poured to the streets in various cities across America to protest the death of George Floyd. The 46-year-old African-American was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota after a white police officer put his knee on his neck for 8 minutes 46 seconds in a disturbing incident captured on camera.

George Floyd’s killing sparked a wave of protests around the US and although the policeman identified as Derek Chauvin was arrested and charged with third-degree murder, the unrest has persisted.
