Wavinya Ndeti, a candidate for governor of Machakos, has spoken out against the violence that took place in Machakos at a rally held by Raila Odinga for the Azimio constituency.
Her opponent in the chama cha uzalendo election, Nzioka Waita, has been accused by the former Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) for Transport of employing thugs in order to disrupt the session.
An argument broke out between supporters of the two candidates shortly after Nzioka arrived at the gathering, which ultimately led to the complete breakdown of order.
The rally came to a standstill for around ten minutes due to an effort by a group of young people to remove Waita from the podium by using physical force.
After the situation had been brought back under control, the former Chief of Staff of the White House was led to the car by the police and joined the other leaders there after things had returned to normal.
Waita, for his part, has accused Ndeti and her supporters of Wiper of turning the rally into a Wiper event, arguing that he had been formally invited to attend the gathering. Waita has accused Ndeti and her supporters of Wiper of turning the rally into a Wiper event.
After the mayhem, he expressed his gratitude to Raila Odinga for mediating and bringing about peace.
