Celebrations to mark Bonny Khalwale's re-election as MP for Ikolomani turned chaotic for a moment when bulls locked horns during speeches.
The fighting bulls rammed into a chopper that flew in Eldoret North MP William Ruto, denting the tail.
Armed police officers guarding two choppers at Malinya Grounds had a hectic time chasing away the bulls after their handlers lost control of them.
The bulls locked horns just as Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Uhuru Kenyatta begun addressing the crowd.
Uhuru had to cut short his speech due to the sudden shouting and movement behind the VIP dias.
Isikuti dancers began moving up and down as if possessed, cheering up the two bulls.
The chopper was assessed and declared able to fly.
"We sometimes get bigger dents compared to this one when we hit birds up in the sky," Captain Paul Denge said.
Celebrations to mark Dr Khalwaleâs re-election started with bull fighting contests early in the morning. Dozens of bulls were brought to Malinya Grounds for the competitions.
After the morning showdown, the bulls were taken to the periphery of the grounds as people listened to the speeches.
Just as Uhuru started addressing the crowd, two bulls locked horns causing confusion and disturbance of peace as one of them bumped up against the chopperâs tail.
