Even as the Kiambaa constituency by-elections enters its homestretch, Sunday became one of the days that tension was highly witnessed in the constituency between President Uhuru's Jubilee and DP Ruto's UDA allied party.
For the better part of the day, pull and push between Jubilee and UDA threatened to disturb the existing peace, after both parties clashed over who is supposed to conduct their campaign activities at Karuri Primary school.
Eventually, police officers were deployed to the venue and helped in curbing the looming confrontation, with all the parties being blocked from accessing the school compound.
But even as the two factions embarked on separate campaign trails across the constituency, it is the Jubilee party that seemed to have suffered more, after their caravan came across that of UDA.
In a video shared online, Jubilee caravan was forced to retreat as hundreds of UDA supporters attending the rally forced its campaign lorry away, while singing songs in praise of Wanjiku and UDA.
Jubilee truck was forced to drive away with no supporters, as UDA supporters, all painted in yellow outfits, shouting and praising their candidate John Njuguna Wanjiku.
UDA had earlier on blamed Jubilee of stealing their venue and trying to conduct their rally, saying they had booked and paid for it before their counterparts.
