Police shoot in the air to disperse Kidero, Khalwale supporters

17 July 2015, 14:32 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Supporters of Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale have clashed outside a Nairobi court.

Police were forced to shoot in the air to disperse the crowd at the Milimani Law Courts which threatened to lose their heads over the matter.

They were also forced to lob tear gas canisters to disperse clashing supporters of Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale.

The supporters had gathered at the court premises in solidarity with their leaders during the hearing of case in which Kidero has sued Khalwale for defamation.

Khalwale had accused Kidero of killing the Mumias Sugar Company and causing the economy of the Kakamega County to deteriorate as a result.

Meanwhile, the High Court Friday issued, once again, orders barring Khalwale from making any comments linking Kidero to the Mumias Sugar scandal.

" I will respect the court's ruling as a law abiding citizen but that will not stop me from saying and stating the truth on the matter," Khalwale said Friday after the court session.

The court gave the parties 14 days to file their responses.

Kidero also accuses Khalwale of slandering him further at a press conference and on his Twitter account.

The incident comes a day after Khalwale was forced to hide in a toilet at the Law Courts.
