Chaos erupts in Kisumu after Uhuru’s property is destroyed

Police lobbed teargas to disperse the irate youth

The locals were irked by the move to erect a billboard congratulating President Kenyatta on his win in the recently concluded General Election yet NASA had filed a petition at the Supreme Court.

The billboard was being set up near Jubilee market along the Kisumu-Nairobi highway.

Police lobbed tear gas to disperse the youth who were burning the materials.

Two workers involved in the process went into hiding when the chaos erupted.

The enraged locals were chanting slogans against Kenyatta. Some mentioned that it was a sign of contempt to them.

'Hatutaki madharau! Hatutaki madharau'.

Others asked the President-elect to respect them as a people who strongly support NASA leader Raila Odinga.

"We are still mourning. Uhuru should give us a break. Let him not disturb our peace," they hurled.
