  • Rowdy youth attempt to stop Suna East MP Junet Mohamed’s rally in Migori

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho received a rude welcome in Migori County on Monday, April 3 in a ceremony where he was the main guest after youths disrupted a re-election rally of Suna East MP Junet Mohamed.

Police had to shoot in the air and fire teargas canisters to disperse the rowdy crowd after supporters of Migori Governor Okoth Obado clashed with those of opponent and former cabinet minister Ochillo Ayacko.

The ODM deputy leader was the highlight of the leaders on show who also included senators Anyang Nyong’o (Kisumu) and James Orengo (Siaya).
