Protests have erupted in Kisii town today morning as pro-handshake and Deputy President William Ruto supporters clashed ahead of his visit.
Reports indicate that the protests were staged by residents who support the handshake but were countered by those who support the DP.
Ruto is expected to meet with boda boda riders in Kisii later on in the day. Ultimately, Police officers have however been deployed to disperse the crowds and restore calm.

Please our Kisii bro, remember some of us stay in Eldoret. Kalenjin nation is our neighbor. Ongwae stop, Osoro stop. pic.twitter.com/qFUkNzMpDI
