A number of Kenyans have accused Kisii governor James Ongwae for being behind the ugly scene where Azimio runningmate Martha Karua was tear gassed at the Gusii stadium.
In a video that has so far gone viral, Martha Karua was just about to speak when a teargas canister was thrown at the dias by an unknown person.
However, most citizens have linked James Ongwae’s bodyguard to the ugly incident which ended the Azimio rally abruptly. Even from the clip, the Kisii governor was just seated even after the teargas was thrown, making many people wonder how comes he was not tensed by such a scary incident.
So scary was the teargas incident that it made the bodyguards of Martha Karua react very fast by whisking her away to safety. Below were the comments by Kenyans that directly put James Ongwae at the center of the melee:
“Ongwae is campaigning for Machogu and Ruto of UDA secretly and pretends to be Baba’s person..” Wrote one Kenyan
“DP Martha Karua leaves Kisii for Nairobi after Ongwae bodyguard threw Teargas canister to the VIP dias at Kisii Studium.The desired results is Ongwae to Brand Simba Arati as a goon!Enough is enough! Ongwae amalize aende otherwise we ain’t going to tolerate his nonsense anymore Very wrong, embarrassing to teargas incoming DP and Governor.” Added another Kenyan.
“Have replayed the clip several timesAs the teargas canister was thrown to the VIP dias and Martha Karua evacuated for safety, Governor Ongwae was just there relaxed until his bodyguards forced him out. Reports indicate Ongwae bodyguard is behind the ugly scenes.” Continued one Kenyan.
“Governor Ongwae’s bodyguard apparently threw the teargas. He was almost killed by the public.” Continued one Robert Alai.
