Migori Chaos: Gunshots, tear gas and injuries rock ODM rally
Scores of people were injured in Migori chaos on Monday.
Those injured included Mombasa Governor, Hassan Joho’s bodyguard.
Joho had gone to open an ODM office in the town and also attend Junet Mohammed’s re-election launch when armed youths attacked them.
It is alleged that area Governor, Okoth Obado was not happy with Junet’s rally.
“My colleague came here but am completely kept out of the programme,” lamented Obado, who denied responsibility for the chaos.
Obado has been at loggerheads with Junet and even denied him permission to use Migori Stadium for the rally.
Other ODM leaders who attended the rally had endorsed Ochillo Oyako for Migori governorship, which according to Obado was provocative.

The youths who disrupted the rally said that they will not allow anybody to undermine their Governor.
Joho, Junet and Millie Odhiambo have however claimed that there was a plot to assassinate Joho during the event.
Police are already conducting investigations into the matter.
