Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was on Monday been heckled during his visit to Muhoroni after some residents held protests.

Raila was in the region to propose special economic zone site in Ombeyi, Muhoroni, a project which the residents are against.

The residents held the protests at the opening of Industrial park within the area.

According to the residents, their protests were motivated by the fact that the government did not consult them about the project.

They further noted that their ancestral land was reverted to the Kisumu Municipal Council after torrential rains pounded the region, flooding the area for months in the early 1980s.

Consequently, the displaced locals were moved to safer grounds, however, the locals now want the land reverted and compensated before the new project begins.

Reports indicate that the locals have complained that the land was later registered under the council.

Muhoroni citizens asserted that they will not be duped to accept their land to be grabbed.

They are reported to have carried placards saying that the handshake should not be used to grab land.
