Eight people who police say are behind the chaos that plagued Vice President William Ruto's tour of Busia County on Saturday have been apprehended.

 The eight are Fredrick Okoth, Reuben Barasa, Moses Oridi, Friday Ouma, Michael Omondi Alwando, George Odongo, David Ouma and Wejuli Shalmin.

 Their arrest came just hours after Home Secretary Fred Matiangi ordered area police to act swiftly and bring those responsible to justice, warning that the government "will adopt zero tolerance with regard to anyone disrupting legitimate political gatherings ".

 "They are in custody at the Busia Police Station awaiting court appearance on charges of malicious damage to property, incitement to violence, disruption, and more." Police HQ said

 The National Police Service has called on members of the public to avoid acts of violence, especially now that the country is entering election time.

 “We will take firm and decisive action against those involved in election-related crime, regardless of their age and status in society. »NPS warned
