Suna East MP Junet Mohammed has reacted to chaotic scenes witnessed at Deputy President William Ruto's rally in Kisumu on Wednesday.

Ruto, who is on a three-day tour in Raila Odinga's political backyard, was forced to cut short his speech n Kodele in Kisumu after a group of rowdy youth pelted his motorcade with stones.

In a report, the police said that the violence was witnessed after two groups of youths in Kisumu clashed over a campaign handout.

"There was tension in Kondele owing to alleged distribution of campaign logistical funds amongst the youths," the police said.

In a rejoinder to the police's statement on what might have caused the violence, Junet alleged that it was the individuals within United Democratic Alliance (UDA), a party allied to DP Ruto, that had taken the money meant for the youth.

The controversial MP further sympathized with the people of Kisumu for failing to receive the purported money.

"Wakora wa UDA disappeared with handouts. Pole Kondele people (People within the UDA disappeared with the handout. I sympathise with the people of Kondele)," Junet said.

On his said, Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi condemned the violence asking Kenyans to be tolerant with each other.

Mudavadi caution that such violence witnessed in Kisumu is likely to cause more chaos in the country, a situation no one wants to witness

"We need to learn to be tolerant of each other in all walks of life. Violence breed more violence which we don't want. All leaders, the IEBC, security agencies and Kenyans at large should condemn such acts," he said.

He asked Kenyans to embrace togetherness and stop the act of hooliganism.
