In Nairobi, Kenya, protesters let loose pigs to show their contempt at the politicians. Protesters said they took action over "greedy" MPs.
MPs are demanding a monthly salary of about $10,000 (£6,540). Kenya's Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) has recommended that their salaries be pegged at around $6,300 a month. Kenya's MPs are among the highest paid in the world. MPs say they deserve a $10,000 salary because they work very hard. MPs in the previous parliament awarded themselves a $107,000 retirement bonus in one of the last sessions before the election.
The average annual salary in Kenya is about $1,700.
Riot police hit protesters and fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.
