Others were Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti, woman rep Gladys Wanga, Kaipsula Kanondo MP Oyugi Magwanga and Kevin Ouma.

They were accused of using youths to cause disturbance by heckling Awiti, as well as heckling and throwing stones at the Homa Bay Stadium.

ODM code of conduct

"These activities have contravened the ODM Code of Conduct, which they have pledged to uphold. They are also a threat to the peaceful conduct of party primaries," ODM executive director Oduor Ong'wen said in a statement on Friday.

The party has also banned Kevin Ouma, Homa Bay Youth League Leader, from holding any appointive or elective party office for allegedly orchestrating the violence.
