Youths affiliated to both NASA and Jubilee clashed on Wednesday at Ogembo town in Kisii during campaign rallies.
Kitutu Chache South MP aspirant Anthony Kibagendi’s arrival in the town perceived to be a NASA zone is said to have stirred up trouble.
Another group of NASA supporters is said to have demanded for their exit and that is when all hell broke loose.
NASA youths threw stones at the Jubilee campaign caravan but no injuries have been reported.
“We are not going to be cowed by goons paid to disrupt our peaceful campaigns,” Kibagendi said.
“We are not going to take any chances in the remaining few days. We are going to move across the county to ensure President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto are re-elected. No one should stop us.”
He urged youths to shun leaders using them to gain political mileage and support those pushing the transformation agenda.
Jubilee’s Kisii county interim chairman Sammy Nyairo condemned the incident saying politicians are free to campaign where they please.
“It is primitive for somebody to pay goons to disrupt a peaceful campaign,” he said.
