Deputy President William Ruto’s visit to Migori County on Saturday was disrupted by rowdy youths who nearly brought it to a premature end, paralyzing activities at the event.

Hundreds of chaotic youths surrounded the DP’s car shortly after he launched the Sh2.8 billion Kehancha-Lolgorian Road, heckling speakers at the event.

Pleas from the DP failed to move the youths who wanted to hear none of what the speakers said.

After attempts to calm the youth failed, a clearly disappointed DP eventually told suggested to the rowdy youths to leave but this did not bear any results.

"If you don't want to listen to us then it is better you leave. The development projects we have come to launch here today are for the benefit of our youth and can't afford to have the same people heckle leaders," said Ruto.

Among those who were in DP Ruto’s entourage were Kuria West MP Mathius Robi and his Kuria East counterpart Fred Chacha.

Robi was harassed while on stage and heckled, forcing him to cut short his speech and hand over the microphone to Chacha who also suffered the same fate.

Conspicuously absent during the event were Provincial Administration officers.
