One person was seriously injured in Siaya County after a rowdy youth attacked minority leader and Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo’s convoy.
Midiwo was in the company of Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo and politician William Oduol when heading for a political party.
Their convoy is said to have made a stop over at Nyadorera market where they started addressing the local residents. A group of youths is said to have appeared wielding clubs and machetes and started attacking the three politicians with Midiwo’s car window being smashed.
Their bodyguards had to shoot in the air to disperse the rowdy youth forcing Midiwo to cut short his speech.
The three escaped unhurt and later proceeded to address the rally at Sidundo in Yala swamp. It was at this rally where Midiwo attacked Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga accusing him of mobilising the rowdy mob.
