There were chaos in Kisumu when rowdy goons disrupted a press briefing by Communications Authority of Kenya Director-General Ezra Chiloba and ate the food meant for guests.
Initially the youths led by Deputy Governor Mathew Owili and Kilimani MCA were participating in the mass action called by ODM leader Raila Odinga and delivered a petition at the County Commissioner’s office then proceeded. They then proceeded to the Jaramogi Oginga Sports Complex upon learning that ICT CS Eliud Owalo would be there.
They however didnt find Owalo and stormed the event, minutes after Chiloba started addressing the press. Chiloba was officiating a High-Level Roundtable event which marked World Consumer Rights Day but had to cut short his event and dash to his vehicle.
The rowdy youths then stormed the catering centre and took away all the food meant for organisers and guests. Other demonstrators bayed for the blood of ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo who was to be the event’s chief guest.
