Police were forced to fire gunshots in the air after youth took advantage of the crowds to steal from those gathered to hear Kenneth speak.

According to The Nation, The youth were having a field day stealing phones and pick pocketing before police arrived at the scene and fired shots in the air to disperse them.

The former Gatanga MP was meeting women supporters at the Friends Bar and Restaurant when the youth gathered at the compound as they waited to be addressed.

It took the intervention of Kenneth to calm the crowd who blamed the police for shooting at them indiscriminately.

Afterwards, Kenneth addressed the crowd where he blasted his main rivals in the Nairobi race Governor Evans Kidero and Senator Mike Sonko saying they had wasted the city’s resources without achieving anything tangible.

He denied reports that he was out to spoil votes for any one that he wants to root out bad leadership.

Kenneth raised a storm on Tuesday after he sensationally accused Deputy President William Ruto of rigging him out during the Jubilee Party primaries.

"Somebody wanted to cut me to size politically and let's not cheat ourselves, that person is Ruto," he said.

Speaking in Mlango Kubwa, Mathare constituency, where he was campaigning, Kenneth alleged that Sonko's supporters voted multiple times resulting in a fraudulent election.

"The ensured that they voted twice, thrice, 10 times, and the worst case was where an individual voted a record 51 times," Kenneth told a crowd.
