A section of the leaders pounced into the little remaining meals without washing their hands, while others descended on the caterers inquiring what had happened to the rest of the food. "When they were told the food was finished, the angry and hungry lot descended on some of the caterers who scampered for safety," a source who was at the venue told the Star.Some leaders blamed former Kisii Senator Chris Obure whom they accused of fleeing with their money, claims he vehemently denied."These are just lies. Those spreading such rumors are just crazy fellows who want the whole thing to be blown out of context. I have not taken anyone's money," Obure affirmed. Meanwhile, the Abagusii community announced that they would back Kenyatta in the repeat polls in October 2017. The President exuded confidence that he would trounce Opposition leader Raila Odinga in the repeat polls.
