Chaos breaks out at Kisumu County Assembly, police lob teargas at rowdy supporters of Speaker Onyango Oloo

Protests rocked Kisumu County on Wednesday morning as the county's assembly speaker Onyango Oloo attempted to gain access of the chambers.

Oloo and his supporters camped outside the county assembly buildings after Members of County Assembly denied the speaker access.

Anti-riot police were called in after Oloo and his supporters became rowdy. The police were forced to fire teargas canisters to disperse the crowds.
