"Chapeni Hao Viboko" Isaac Ruto Tells Police to Punish Those Who Stoned, Heckled Raila in Uasin Gishu

Chama Cha Mashinani party leader Issac Ruto has called upon the police to arrest, and punish those who will be found guilty of heckling and stoning Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga on Friday while touring Uasin Gishu County.

Raila and some of his allies were forced to look for other means of transport after rowdy youths pelted their vehicles and chopper with stones when he attended the burial of Mzee Jackson Kibor at Kabenes Village.

Speaking on Saturday, Ruto condemned the incident saying that Kenyans are free to tour every part of the country, and what happened should not be tolerated at this time when the country is shy from the August polls by few months.

He further apologized saying that what happened was unfortunate, and that the Rift Valley Region is peaceful and are calling any political leader to visit the region to sell their agenda.

"What happened yesterday where a chopper was stoned when the leaders had gone to eulogize our Mzee, Kibor is an embarrassment. We apologize, and we want those involved to be arrested and charged 'wachapwe viboko lakini kidogo tu.'

The country should be peaceful, it is normal to look for votes and campaign, that does not mean it is time for insults, chaos or violence. We should remain peaceful, we should not witness same scenes like those that led to the death of Baby Pendo. If you want votes come and walk around, ask for votes, be free to sell your agenda," said Ruto.
