Police spokesperson Bruno Shioso in a statement has revealed that the DP Ruto team was advised to skip the affected area after tension over the alleged distribution of logistics cash among groups.
Ruto was in Kisumu to sell his presidential agenda.
A crowd disrupted Deputy President William Ruto’s Wednesday tour of Kondele Ward in Kisumu Central Sub-County.
The police indicate that several cars were destroyed but no injuries were reported.
Some youth pelted his convoy with stones. Ruto was addressing the crowd from his vehicle’s sunroof and was forced to cut short his speech which had lasted barely five minutes.
Police officers in at least four Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles were deployed to the scene to restore normalcy.
