Chaos has rocked a venue in Marsabit where President Kenyatta is expected to campaign today.

The rivalry between two gubernatorial candidates— incumbent Ukur Kanacho Yattani (Frontier Alliance Party) and Mohamud Mohamed Ali, alias Abshiro of Jubilee— played out at Moi Girls on Wednesday morning.

Supporters allied to the two leaders attacked one another with rocks after a shouting-and-singing match failed to produce a clear winner.

Mr Yattani and Mr Abshiro come from two dominant tribes in the county— Gabbra and Boran— that want one of their own in the top county seat.

Clan and tribe play a major role in Marsabit politics, as in the rest of northern and eastern Kenya.

Calm was only restored after police intervened, with more security personnel being called in to help restore order.

The JP team has already arrived in Moyale town and they are set to address supporters there before moving to Marsabit town.
