Photos: Goons Stone Gumbo's Campaign Motorcade in Siaya as He Attempted to Access Azimio Rally

Siaya County gubernatorial candidate Nicolas Gumbo is the latest victim of the worrying political intolerance that has dotted the political scene with violence and other ugly scenes.

Gumbo who is James Orengo's main challenger running under the sponsorship of Mandera governor Ali Roba's UDM party met the wrath of the unknown goons who pelted his luxurious cars with all manner of projectiles, damaging all the windshields and side mirrors as he attempted to access the Azimio rallies spearhead by Raila in different spots in Siaya County.

The attack saw Gumbo and other candidates running for office under Azimio affiliate parties being blocked from attending the mega rallies.

The ugly incident which according to Gumbo they had earlier intelligence, has since attracted the attention of police who have promised to leave no stone unturned so as to bring the perpetrators of the violence to justice.

Gumbo has also expressed his determination to continue with his cause of liberating Siaya no matter the levels of intimidation he will be subjected to.

Painting an image of a peacekeeper, Gumbo has urged his supporters to exercise restraint and calmness and led the police unravel the motive of the attackers and they be held accountable for their actions.

"After we unearthed their scheme to cause chaos at the rallies today, they resorted to violence while blocking me and other Azimio one Kenya Coalition Party candidates from accessing the events. The matter has been forwarded to the police for the goons responsible to be held accountable. I therefore urge my supporters to remain calm. Our journey is still on course. A new dawn for Siaya is nigh. Difficult roads often lead to Beautiful destinations." Gumbo said.
