Two people were shot and injured after President Uhuru Kenyatta's rally on Wednesday, in a controversy in which the two were jostling up for dominance.

They were among three people who sustained injuries after the governor candidates' supporters clashed.

The lot, among them an AP officer, were caught up in the fracas at Moi Girls after Uhuru addressed a rally at Saku.

Police fired teargas canisters to disperse the youth following the chaos blamed on Kenya Police Reservists who were later arrested and disarmed.

If found culpable, the law provides that the two be struck from the race. This comes even as elections beckon, 11 days away.
