Kisii youths on Wednesday took to the streets in dramatic protests and chanted pro-NASA slogans during the President and DP’s tour of the county.
The violent protests came a few minutes after President Uhuru Kenyatta finished addressing hundreds of residents at Gusii Stadium.
The protests were led by Kitutu Chache South ODM parliamentary aspirant, Samuel Omwando, who termed the county an ODM zone.
The protesters, in addition to chanting pro-NASA and ODM slogans, shouted ‘Uhuru Must Go!’, as they disrupted traffic operations in the town.
They rode motorcycles, carried oranges, waved pictures of Raila, blew whistles, and burned Jubilee branded t-shirts.
According to a protester who did not want to be named, he only participated in the demos because they were promised cash.
“I am here not because I hate Jubilee but because I want to get the cash we were promised by organisers who want to create the impression that ODM is popular in the region. I don’t think that is true,” he said as quoted by The Star.
