The aspiring Presidential candidate,Jimmy wanjigi's was on Friday holding a rally in Migori County and it was stopped.A group of people disrupted the campaign by hurling stones to the candidate.
Many leaders have condemned the act, saying that such people should be taken a step for doing so.The move has also been criticised by the National assembly speaker Justin Muturi.
He said that it is a pity that some presidential candidate cannot campaign in some parts of Kenya.
Mr Muturi went further calling out on politicians to be tolerant and make sure their supporters are tamed. Wanjigi's event was disrupted after his convoy was stopped by stones thrown from people.
Speaking while at St Michael Catholic Church in Kiangungi,he condemned the act saying that Kenya is a multiparty democratic country so it's really hurting seeing some leaders seeking to be elected being attacked. Such cases should not be witnessed in the country.
He added that it is very disrespectful to hurl stones at someone he went on saying that those who are hiring goons to fight others should stop.
Was it right what the Migori citizen did, what led to the act?
We live in a civilized country so hurling stones to some aspiring candidate is very disrespectful, do you agree or not?
Let's communicate with each. Comment in the comment section below.
