Details reveal that Karua and Ida Odinga never spoke to supporters due to the explosion of tear gas before they got the chance. Reports reveal that Simba Arati's supporters and governor James Ongwae's supporters were the cause of the chaos after they both clashed at the stadium.
Police were forced to separate the supporters by use of tear gas and forcefully driving them out of the stadium.
This occurred immediately when the Azimio la Umoja presidential running mate Martha Karua had taken to the podium to address supporters.
Properties like chairs were destroyed while the crowd was making its way out of the stadium. Thanks for reading.
