Former Kisumu deputy governor Ruth Odinga was forced to flee from Urudi Primary School in Nyakach constituency after chaos erupted at the polling station during the Orange Democratic Movement primaries on Tuesday.
Ms. Odinga had gone to the polling station to verify claims that an unidentified person was carrying out a parallel voting exercise at the polling station.
But when she was leaving the polling station, some youths confronted each other, forcing the police to fire in the air several times to disperse the rowdy crowd. The voting process was stopped for a few minutes. One person was injured.
