Members of the public, who were heard chanting NASA slogans, burnt posters belonging to Jubilee candidates and destroyed billboards in support of the current government.

One of the residents was heard stating that Jubilee had done nothing for the region and that they would not vote for the President during the August polls.

“We will not allow the President to come here and feed us with Jubilee propaganda yet we are unable to afford three meals a day because of the high price of maize flour,” one of the locals, Albert Machera was quoted by the Nation.

Meanwhile, Kitutu Masaba MP Timothy Bosire on Monday welcomed the President and his deputy William Ruto to the region but warned them they would not get votes from the area.

“We have no problem with the President going anywhere and everywhere. We cannot do what they did to us in Kapsabet on Sunday where they attempted to disrupt our rally,” said Bosire.

The legislator added that Kisii was a NASA stronghold and that the Head of State was only wasting time.

“We do not have them at heart. Our resolve to support NASA is resolute," Mr Bosire was quoted by the Star.
