A number of persons totaling to 14 have so far been arrested in relation to the Friday attack that was aimed at former premier's convoy of a chopper and vehicles while in Uasin Gishu County.
The ODM boss and his associates were attending to the burial of the late 'Men’s Conference chairman' Mzee Jackson Kibor in Soy, when riotous youngsters began throwing stones at his chopper.
While addressing the press in Eldoret on Saturday, Uasin Gishu County Commissioner Stephen Kihara told press that the accused are currently aiding the security personnel in investigating the unfortunate incident.
He exuded confidence that they have successfully managed to arrest 14 youngsters in the course of the night who are believed to have participated in the act of throwing stones.
Kihara further argued that they will leave no stone unturned and will pursue the organisers with zeal and zest to make sure they are brought to book and charged accordingly for the regrettable incident.
“We’re conducting subsequent investigations and we will nab the person who likely organized the incident. Regardless of who was involved, he or she will face the law and this will be a lesson for persons preaching politically instigated violence,” he added.
He further calls on the youth to shun violence of any sort as the General Elections draws close. Kihara posits every politician in the country has a right constitutionally to look for votes in all corners of the country without bothering threats and intimidations.
