Migori Is Baba: ODM Presidential Aspirant Wanjigi Forced To Run For His Life After Chaos Erupts

Presidential Aspirant Jimi Wanjigi started his Nyanza tour yesterday with an aim of popularising him in the region. He was scheduled to meet a set of delegates at Maranatha Faith Assemblies Church hall in Migori town today. At around 2 p.m as his motorcade drove at Migori town, around Posta grounds a section of youths who were on foot and motorbikes, stopped him and started throwing stones to him.

On Tuesday , Migori County ODM chairman, Phillip Makabong'o had sent a terse message to Wanjigi against holding the meeting. Earlier today Wanjigi said that he was the last bullet ODM leader Raila Odinga would use to win the ODM seat. In the video the angry youths are heard chanting the name of Raila while throwing stones.

Several vehicles were broken windows, side mirrors as youths on motorbikes chased the motorcade for about four kilometers to Namba Junction outside Migori town. This was after the incidence where Wanjigi was stoned after trying to address residents atop a vehicle. He was neccesitated to seek cover in the vehicle as the driver sped off. Police Officers lobbed teargas canisters to chase away the angry youths who continued to pursue him even after picking an alternative route outside town.
