Gem South by election in Siaya County on Thursday turned violent after opposing camps clashed.
Polycarp Abala of ODM and Brian Anyango Obiero supporters clashed leaving several injured and vehicles damaged.
Eye witnesses claim that some goons who tried to disrupt the by election came from Kisumu County.
“Voting started very well, people were arrived at the polling station on time. But unfortunately some goons showed who started hacking people. We had to scamper for safety. A number of us were injured,” said Rosemary Atieno Ocholla.
Kambare Polling Station Presiding Officer Michael Nyawade says that they had to temporarily stope the voting process due to violence.
“We were doing well until 11 when some goons crossed the fence and forcefully got into the polling station. We had to temporarily stop the process,” said Nyawade.
