Several Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) officials are recuperating at a Migori hospital following a brutal attack by Orange party supporters in Migori County.
Rowdy youths stormed St John’s Seminary Rakwaro Catholic Church where the officials were undergoing a training to prepare for the nominations scheduled for Monday. Victims, who were presiding officers, said that the group was ferried in by two pickups armed with crude weapons.
The group of youths claimed that the officers had been planning to rig the ODM nominations in favor of one candidate.
Residents were forced to intervene to rescue the officers from the youths who were baying for their blood.
Migori Police Commander David Kirui while confirming the incident said that 20 suspects had been apprehended in connection to the attack. The county police boss assured that there will be enough security ahead of the much anticipated ODM primaries in Migori.
