Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party presidential candidate Raila Odinga's rally in Marsabit County was interrupted after supporters clashed and started exchanging blows.
The meeting was going on well in Moyale town when different groups of political aspirants clashed and started fighting a few metres from where Raila and his running mater Martha Karua were sitting
Citizen TV reports that the fracas erupted as CS Ukur Yatani was addressing the gathering.
In the viral video, supporters were spotted exchanging blows while others rungus they were carrying to launch their defensive and offensive attacks.
Police officers who were on the round to maintain law and order were forced to lob the teargas at the fighting groups to disperse them.
However, the chaos did not last long before normalcy was restored. Raila was able to talk to his supporters before he proceed to Marsabit town
"Moyale wameamua kwamba wako ndani ya Azimio kikamilifu," Rila tweeted after the rally, which loosely translates to
*Moyale has decided that they are in Azimio)
