The opposition Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader, Raila Odinga, and Kakamega Governor, Wycliff Oparanya, escaped unscathed after chaos erupted during a meeting in Mumia East.
The windscreen of the vehicle carrying Odinga and Oparanya was allegedly smashed by pro-Jubilee youth who had attended a meeting convened by area Member of Parliament, Benjamin Washiali, to discuss the police brutality witnessed on Thursday, November 24 during the search for guns stolen from Booker Police Station by unknown assailants.
The meeting turned chaotic after some Members of County Assembly (MCAs) allied to the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), an affiliate party of the CORD coalition, allegedly tried wrestling a microphone from one of the speakers allied to the ruling Jubilee administration.
The confrontation between the two groups sparked animosity between the attendees, most of whom were young persons, leading to chaos.
The youth, armed with stones and crude weapons, charged at each other with some pelting stones at rival camps.
Odinga and Oparanya were also blocked by the Jubilee supporters, led by MP Washiali, from addressing the meeting with the youth chanting anti-CORD slogans.
