Worrying Details After Rowdy Youths Burn Governor Waiguru's Campaign Materials (Photos)

A group of youths in Kirinyaga County has done the unthinkable by burning Governor Anne Waiguru's campaign materials. The aggrieved youths made such a decision amid DP William Ruto's visit to the county.

According to the photos shared by Nation Media Group's NTV, the youths are seen holding materials branded with Governor Waiguru's picture and name as they torched them.

The scene witnessed comes amid the political tension between Governor Waiguru and Kirinyaga County women representative Hon. Ngirici. Since Waiguru decided to join DP Ruto's UDA party from Jubilee's Kieleweke camp, there have been rumours of division in the UDA camp between the two leaders.

Before the arrival of DP Ruto and his team, the youths were rioting at Kirinyaga town in what turned out to be anti-Waiguru riots. However, it is not yet clear who sent the youths to burn Waiguru's campaign materials.

Police responded quickly and the youths were successfully dispersed. We hope that anybody who was involved in planning and taking place of such an activity will be arrested and brought into books for questioning concerning the matter.
