The newly opened United Democratic Alliance (UDA) offices in Kisumu were vandalised during the Monday March 20, Azimio La Umoja protests.
Sources told Nyanza Daily that demonstrators broke into the premises and stole goods of unknown value. Shattered windows and uprooted plants were strewn all over the compound.
The UDA Kisumu Chairman Eric Osenya said they were held hostage by the protestors who stormed the premises forcing them to lock themselves in the office as protesters threw stones at the offices. “When we got out, they came in vandalised everything. They took all the computers, laptops, cameras, seats and curtains,” he said. Two cars parked outside the office were also torched as firefighters tried to put out the fire.
Kisumu Governor Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o criticised the vandals saying bad elements had infiltrated the peaceful protests.
