There were waves of violence in both Jubilee and National Super Alliance (NASA) camps.
It all begun when President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto landed in Mbita, a perceived NASA stronghold, for a Jubilee campaign.
Things turned out of hand when the Deputy rose to introduce those who had accompanied he President. Rowdy youth started chanting NASA songs with some saying;
Hatutaki Ruto! Hatutaki Ruto! (We don’t want Ruto)
One hour later, the same violence broke out in Kabarnet, in the Rift Valley region where the NASA brigade had taken their campaigns. Those who had come to listen to the NASA leaders learned of the happenings in Mbita through social media of “their leader being disrespected and humiliated,” and decided to teach the NASA brigade a “lesson”.
The youth in Kabarnet went a notch higher to burn NASA banners and T-shirts forcing the NASA leaders to cut short their meeting after just 16 minutes.
Is the current wave of violence an early sign of what might happen after the next general election?
