The governor’s bodyguards shot in the air injuring Joho’s bodyguard in the process before the whole rally was brought to an abrupt end.

Interestingly, Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo faulted the ODM deputy party leader for the chaos leaving many surprised unto why he was removed from the disciplinary list.

"Our Deputy Party leader ought to have had courtesy to inform the Migori governor he was heading to his county," Mr. Midiwo stated.

Ongoro caused chaos at the party offices compelling police officers to fire in the air and disperse the rowdy crowd.
