No, the video showing Nairobi CBD being inaccessible due to recent protests in the country is old.
The video of a man being beaten severely by police officers was shot during CORD-organized Anti-IEBC demonstrations in May 2016, and has nothing to do with the current Azimio la Umoja Coalition’s planned protest in March 20, 2023.

established that it is Misleading.
To arrive to this conclusion, the iVerify Network of Fact-Checking Desks has conducted the following process. We conducted a reverse image search and discovered that the video was taken on May 16, 2016 during a heavy-handed response to an opposition protest at the offices of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in Kenya’s capital, where riot officers beat up, Bernard Ngatia, a protester with batons, repeatedly kicking him even after being taken down by the officers, as he lay motionless on the ground.
