Occupants who addressed the Nation asserted that one gathering was on the side of Mr Taitumu while the other was supporting Mr Maore.
Inconvenience began when Mr Taitumu began tending to the meeting after Mr Gachagua and Mr Murungi had spoken. As the gatherings recited trademarks on the side of their applicants, others began tossing stones.
Police anyway mediated and reestablished quiet and the gathering continued. Mr Linturi faulted Mr Maore for the brutality, saying, the MP had promised the gathering wouldn’t be held in his backyad.
“We can’t permit a pioneers to utilize the young by paying them to release brutality,” he said. Prior, Mr Gachagua has told region inhabitants that a Kenya Kwanza government would guarantee that the miraa area was resuscitated by looking for new business sectors.
