Police in Kwale County have today disrupted Governor Hassan Joho’s rally that was to take place at Kinango township.
The rally which had been organized by Kinango constituency aspirant Benjamin Tayari started on well but, police descended on residents ordering them to leave immediately after Joho arrived.
As soon as Joho’s chopper arrived, police threw teargas at the place of landing inviting the wrath of members of public who chanted Mvurya must go.
They blamed Salim Mvurya who is Kwale Governor of being behind the cancellations.
Police stated that the venue had been booked for a public medical camp and that ODM had not be given the okay to hold the rally on the grounds.
Joho however vowed to continue with his meetings in all Coast counties to enlighten locals of their rights and campaign.
“We will continue highlight issues affecting our people,” Mr Joho said, adding that reports indicated there were also plans to disrupt a major ODM rally slated for Tononoka grounds in Mombasa on Sunday.
