Two groups of youths supporting NASA and Jubilee clashed at Ogembo town in Kisii during campaign rallies on Wednesday.
Trouble started when Jubilee youths, led by Kitutu Chache South MP aspirant Anthony Kibagendi, arrived in the town perceived to be a NASA zone.
Another group allied to NASA confronted them demanding that they leave immediately.
Pro-NASA youths threw stones at the Jubilee campaign caravan. No injuries were reported in the incident that took place just 20 days to the general election on August 8.
“We are not going to be cowed by goons paid to disrupt our peaceful campaigns,” Kibagendi said.
“We are not going to take any chances in the remaining few days. We are going to move across the county to ensure President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto are re-elected. No one should stop us.”
The politician called on youths to shun leaders using them to gain political mileage and support those pushing the transformation agenda.
His team has intensified campaigns in Kisii for Uhuru, Ruto, Senator Chris Obure (governor), Charles Nyachae (senator) and Doris Aburi (woman representative).
Kbagendi told Jubilee supporters the region will only develop if the ruling coalition remains in power.
Jubilee county interim chairman Sammy Nyairo condemned the incident saying politicians are free to campaign where they please.
Nyairo urged police to arrest those involved in the attack saying the era of throwing stones is gone.
“It is primitive for somebody to pay goons to disrupt a peaceful campaign,” he said.
