Mr Wamalwa, who is fighting to retain his CS position, is said to have received some beatings before the police intervened and rescued the situation.

In the incident before CS Wamalwa’s motorcade came under attack when he arrived at the Maragoli Cultural Festival at around 3 pm as Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi was addressing the crowd. Angry youths ordered that the CS leave even as Mr. Mudavadi tried to calm them down.

The CS was led away from the dais by Central Organization for Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli, Mr Mudavadi, and several other leaders.

According to Mudavadi, CS Wamalwa had come uninvited to the event. He said the latter should have consulted other Jubilee leaders from the region, who conspicuously skipped the event.
