Four injured in the melee
A section of the streets in Kisii were a no- go zone Saturday after Pro – Azimio and Pro-UDA supporters clashed in the County capital. .
At least four youth were injured in the morning melee.
A police officer in riot gear also suffered slight injuries at the back after he was pelted with a stone.
The skirmishes broke out near Ram Hospital along Daraja Moja-Nyamataro by- pass after several youth who had filtered out of Kisii County Assembly precincts engaged the pro-UDA youth with stones.
Fred Nunda, UDA group leader condemned the incident.
He said they were provoked by the ODM youth as they held peaceful walk.
“We were having very peaceful protests when they begun throwing us stones. We did not have any issues with them, we only had misgivings with the way their party leader Raila Odinga and Siaya Senator James Orengo used their rally in Kisii to trade very disparaging remarks on our leaders,” said Nunda.
The demonstrations had begun from Daraja Mbili market, with some riding into the Capital Round About.
They addressed journalists before heading out to to Daraja Moja-Nyamataro bypass where they ran into the stone pelting mobs.
