A public rally in Kasikeu, Kilome Sub County in which Wiper Democratic Movement leader and former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka was the guest speaker aborted after rowdy youths stormed the venue and chased away members of the public who had turned up for the rally.
Kalonzo who was flanked by Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana, Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior and MP Daniel Maanzo was forced to flee the scene after the unruly youths, chanting slogans of Maendeleo Chap Chap being headed by Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua started pelting stones and flogging those who had attended the meeting.
The youth believed to be supporters of the area MP Regina Ndambuki who has been at loggerheads with the Wiper leader for openly supporting Governor Mutua said they were against Kalonzo and Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama.
The two have been opposed to the Machakos Governor whom they have accused of wanting to divide the Kamba community for selfish gains.
Last month the governor took his Maendeleo Chap Chap campaigns to the neighboring Kitui and Makueni counties and today’s rallies by Kalonzo Musyoka in Kasikeu, Emali and Wote towns are meant to counter Governor Mutua earlier visits.
The vice president is expected to address a similar rally in Emali and Wote towns.
