There were chaos outside the Jubilee Party headquarters situated at the Pangani interchange, after angry aspirants who won in the just concluded nominations ran out of patience.
Police in anti-riot gear were forced to shoot in the air in a effort to disperse supporters of the politicians who were protesting the delay by the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led party to issue winners with nomination certificates.
The Friday, May 12 evening incident left police with no other option but shoot in the air to disperse the irate crowd.
It is said that some supporters of the aspirants had camped outside the Jubilee Headquarters for five days without sleep, only to receive the news on Friday that they would have to wait longer.
Most of the aspirants wondered if the delay was a plot by the party to do something fishy with the documents, considering the deadline for parties to submit the names of their candidates to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is Sunday, May 14.
Property was reportedly destroyed in the fracas and it was at that point that aspirants were allowed into the premises and were served from a tent.
A schedule released by the party yesterday, shows that awarding of nomination certificates will be done between Friday, May 12, and Monday, May 15.
Aspirants from Kiambu, Nyeri, Embu, Meru, Laikipia, Turkana, Nakuru, Uasin Gishu, Nairobi and Nakuru received their certificates on Friday.
