There was drama at Reformed Church of East African Church in Eldoret today when aspirants vying on various elective seats transported their goons in hundreds to disrupt the election of Uasin Gishu County Jubilee Party election board nominees.
The goons alighted from the hired vehicles outside the church gate and forcefully entered into the church compound, the venue of the election after word licked that there were plans to impose election board members on the aspirants ahead of the party primaries slated for April.
This forced the organizers of the election to call for police reinforcement who arrived in three land cruisers and secured the venue of the polls before flushing out the goons to pave way for the process to start.
The exercise was delayed for two hours as supporters of the rival political Jubilee aspirants engaged in a fist fight and name calling as threatening to break the gate in their quest to storm in the compound.
But quick action by the police in anti-riot gear managed to quell the mob and restored law and order, paving way for the election to be conducted in a peaceful atmosphere under the supervision of Noor.
The election of the nominees was attended by the sitting MPs Samuel Chepkonga, ( Ainabkoi ) who is also the chairman of parliamentary committee on Justice and Legal Affairs, Sila Tiren ( Moiben), James Bett ( Kesses ) and a host of aspirants for governor, senate MPand MCAs seats.
