Omar continued by saying that the search for other suspects is underway and that the arrest will not spare anyone including leaders who will be linked to the incident.

“We are not sparing anyone on this. The Internal Security Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki was clear concerning the financiers and politicians who orchestrated the ugly scene, we are summoning even elected leaders so long as they are suspected to be part of the organizers” he said

The news follows heckles during the President’s visit targeting the county Governor Hillary Barchok who was denied an opportunity to address the people.
