Raila Odinga’s tour of the Meru region faced hostility on Tuesday as Jubilee and NASA supporters clashed at Laare Town ahead of his first visit in in the County since the August 8 poll.

The rival camps engaged in running battles, burnt tyres and hurled stones at each other.


Citizen reports, Jubilee supporters chanted anti NASA slogans and could be heard shouting ‘hatutaki maandamano’.

The pro-government supporters vowed to block Odinga from addressing the residents in any of the stop overs he was expected to make.

The NASA chief was expected to address rallies at Igembe, Tigania and Imenti sub-counties.
