Embu Governor Martin Wambora was forced to intervene for peace after violence broke out at Raila's stopover at Runyenjes in Embu County.

The crowd who had gathered to welcome Raila Odinga clashed with opponents who were heckling the Governor as he tried to give out an address.

"Tumekuja na amani na hatutaki vita," Wambora intervened 

After Wambora's plea failed, chaos erupted and some were forced to flee for safety.

A few minutes later,calm was restored and the campaign rally proceeded peacefully.
