ODM presidential aspirant Jimmy Wanjigi was pelted with stones during his first tour of Nyanza as a presidential aspirant under the ODM party.
Wanjigi who is seeking to run for President of Kenya under the ODM party was stoned as he was addressing a mammoth roadside rally from the top of his vehicle.
Wanjigi later addressed a press conference condemning the incident terming it intolerance by people within the party who are not comfortable with his candidature.
“This is a sad day for democracy in this country. You may not like my message but you must defend my right to say it” said Wanjigi in Kisii.
Suna East MP Junet Mohamed and Migori Senator Ochillo Ayacko have both condemned the incident and asked the police to apprehend the culprits.
