Some of the Let My Vote Count Alliance protesters have been beaten and others arrested by the Police for allegedly using unapproved routes in their march to demand a new electoral roll.

The police fired tear gas and beat protesters with horse whips in attempts to cow them into submission.

The police suspected the protesters were trying to deviate from the planned route and where heading to the Electoral Commission. The police secured a court order yesterday to stop the protesters from going to the Commission's premises to picket.

It started peacefully.....

Then some misunderstanding between organisers and police broke out......

And then it turned violent.....
