Security Acts Quickly, Shields Raila From Flying Stones as Chaos Breaks Out in Marsabit (Video)

Azimio One Kenya Alliance coalition rally in Moyale, Marsabit was on Thursday disrupted after chaos erupted following a clash between supporters of different groups in the county.

The scuffles started when Raila Odinga was about to address the crowd. The supporters of competing leaders from the county took on each other before the rowdy goons started pelting stones at the dais where Raila and Azimio leaders were sitting.

His security were quickly forced into action, creating a barrier between Raila and the rowdy crowd. From the videos shared, the security could be seen jumping high to curb the flying stones before injuring the ODM party boss.

Plea from the local leaders felt on deaf ears as the rowdy factions engaged each other with kicks and blows. When things got out of hand, police officers were forced to swing into action and disperse the warring factions.

Suna East MP Junet Mohamed could be heard urging the crowd which had been dispersed to come nearer the dais and have the rally proceed.

The rally however, came to a premature end as Raila and his team proceeded to Marsabit town to address a similar rally.
