They were visiting for an afternoon reception function following the inauguration ceremony of the area assistant Chief Risper Akoth in the morning.

However, the drama began when speeches were being made, the area MP Atandi after addressing guest and locals invited his Nyakach counterpart who later invited Otiende then concluded by inviting Orengo to address and make a closing remark at the event.

However, this did not go well with the locals who ordered that an aspirant for the position of MP in the area Ochogo must also address them and not be ignored.

On the other hand, Ochogo said when the commotion began, he was compelled to go on stage to address the locals.

"The locals were demanding that I had to address them before the senator spoke so I went to the podium thinking that following the demands, the senator who allow me to address the locals after the area MP ignored me, " Mr Odogo said.

" I didn't even take a minute at the podium, the next thing a heard was a gunshot from behind, and everyone started to run for safety in all direction. We didn't know what was happening. I ran to my car as others ran for safety wondering who made the shot, " he added.

However later, Otiende when contacted accused aspirants of being behind all that occurred.

He claimed that the applicant had sponsored goons to interrupt the function.

The MP noted that his counterpart Atandi had refused to offer the microphone to Ochogo stating he was his competitor.

"When everything erupted we were forced to flee for safety as the goons were stoning the chopper," he said at the same time calling on the police to investigate the matter.

"He tried to cause chaos, we dint want to be part of it, we went to the chopper and left".
