But Timamy managed to get to town before his meeting was disrupted. The incidence left a number of people facing breathing difficulties, including the former governor on whose feet some of the teargas canisters went off. A number of residents criticised the police action claiming that it was a violation of the constitution since the meeting was peaceful. “It is very wrong for a leader to be treated this way. Timamy is protected by the Constitution,” said Francis Mugo. The former governor and his deputy, Eric Mugo, accused certain politicians in the county of using the police to stop the meeting. They vowed to soldier on with more meetings.
