Kisumu - Rowdy Kenyan youths jeered at President Uhuru Kenyatta when he stopped over in the Kisumu Country - one of the opposition's strongholds - to deliver a speech over the weekend.
This was Kenyatta's sixth visit to the region since taking office in 2013.
The youths, who were chanting the opposition Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) slogans, demanded to know how the disputed KES 140 billion Eurobond money had been spent.
According to the Daily Nation, they also complained about poor roads in the region.
In response, the president promised to tackle issues affecting the youth in the region, including reviving stalled National Youth Service (NYS) projects.
This is not the first time that Kenyatta has received a hostile reception in opposition strongholds.
Youths in In Migori County recently threw shoes and plastic chairs at Kenyatta when he visited the area to launch an anti-malaria campaign.
