Chaos in Mombasa as Mashujaa Day celebrations disrupted

The Mashujaa Day celebrations at the Tononoka Grounds in Mombasa County were disrupted after Jubilee and the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) supporters clashed.

The chaos erupted after supporters of area Governor, Ali Hassan Joho, and Nyali Member of Parliament, Hezron Awiti, clashed.

Police were forced to intervene to quell the animosity that had threatened to disrupt the function that had started on a peaceful note.

The Nyali MP was forced to stop his speech temporarily until police calmed the situation. He later proceeded to make his speech.
