Fights were reported between the supporters of the Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru and Purity Wangui Ngirici outside a church where the deputy president William Ruto was supposed to be visiting. The chaos erupted just before the deputy president William Ruto arrived at the event where he was forced to intervene in between the public differences that both Anne Waiguru and Purity Ngirici were showing through their supporters.
