Chaos in Kisumu over Raila-NASA deal (Photos)

Rowdy youth clashed over Raila's tenure once he becomes President.

Chaos erupted in Kisumu on Thursday morning over the deal between ODM leader Raila Odinga and the NASA coalition.

Two groups clashed in the city demonstrated while advocating for Raila to go for two terms in office should he win the August elections.

Leaders led by Raila's brother, Oburu Odinga in a press conference blamed Jubilee leaders of being behind the chaos which was aimed at creating disunity in Nasa,

The move is likely to increase tension among the NASA affiliate parties of ODM, Wiper, Ford Kenya, Amani and Chama Cha Mashinani parties.

However, Raila has publicly declared that he will serve for one term if elected President during the August 8 polls.

The NASA flag bearer has insisted he will run the nation under the guidance of a MoU signed by the five NASA principals.

During a rally in Machakos last month, Raila said his success in the August polls would be a springboard to Kalonzo's rise to power in 2022.

Kalonzo told his home supporters that they had agreed as NASA leaders that Raila would be a one-term President and would back his bid in 2022, saying that they had agreed to support Raila on condition he would be a one-term President.

"We agreed that we all shelve our ambitions of becoming President to back Raila. We signed a deal, which is now a public document, that he will only be a one-term President," Kalonzo said.
