Chaos Erupts At Azimio's Rally. A Man Beaten After Stealing A Phone At Kamukunji Grounds

After an alleged pickpocket was pummeled by attendees of the conference, the spectacle was ascertained on Wednesday at Kamukunji Grounds.

He was accused of stealing a cell phone from rallygoers for Leader Raila Odinga at Azimio La Umoja.

As he attempted to defend himself from the beatings, bystanders were observed kicking him and snatching his t-shirt.

A witness said, "He was caught taking a cell phone from one of us and tried to provoke violence."

The National Police Service declared on Tuesday that the rallies will have sufficient protection.

Deputy Inspector General Noor Gabow pleaded with the attendees to keep the peace in a statement on the Inspector General's behalf.

The law, however, would be followed in handling any violation of the peace, according to Gabow. In the public consultative meeting, Raila had promised to discuss what happened during the general election on August 9.

He said that they had amassed enough proof and carried out a comprehensive investigation of the events leading up to President William Ruto's declaration of victory.
