Uhuru heckled, rally disrupted in Migori

08 September 2014, 18:17 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta was heckled during a rally in Migori, where missiles were thrown in his direction in Migori. 

The rally, held in Migori Monday where the president was to hold an anti-malaria campaign was disrupted after rowdy youth started throwing missiles such as stones, shoes and bottles at the presidential dias.

They had apparently complained about Migori Governor Okoth Obado and his apparent flirtation with the Jubilee coalition.

The youth chanted anti- Obado messages as well as sung Orange Democratic Movement ODM victory songs.

The president, who seemed perplexed did not initially lose his temper and stood to speak before he hurriedly finished and left when the situation threatened to get out of hand.

Others with the president included Obado, Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma, Migori Senator Wilfred Machage and a number of area MPs, but they were all heckled when they tried to calm the situation down.

The events will be embarrassing especially for ODM as a party and its leader Raila Odinga.

ODM communications secretary Philip Etale immediately disassociated the party from the chaos within minutes of the chaos taking place, saying that leaders from across the political divide have previously been welcomed well in ODM strongholds.

" They have always been welcomed well and the president and his deputy too have not been disturbed before on their numerous trips, he said.

Security experts though, faulted the president's team for not knowing in advance the prospects of trouble taking place in the area.

" The president's team must take responsibility for this. They should have sensed the situation at hand and advised the president but they did not, Wilson Okumu a Nairobi based security expert said.

The president had earlier toured Awendo and other areas in the region where he was warmly welcomed.
