"The rowdy group robbed us of our belongings. I was hit on the head with a panga and kicked and my collegue was also attacked in the process. They also overturned a police car that had escorted us. They even tried to break into our vehicle so as to steal more belongings,” she added.

Reports indicate that the youth were in the streets as early as 10 am chanting 'no Raila, no peace' slogans.

They managed to penetrate a police barrier and marched wielding pangas and robbing people along the way.

The angry crowd forced businesses to come to a standstill as shop owners opted to shut down for fear of being robbed.
