  • The National Police Service (NPS) said two people were killed in chaos that erupted at Kenol town as youths allied to Jubilee Party’s Tangatanga and Kieleweke factions clashed.
  • Via Twitter, the NPS said Mr Nyoro and Ms Wahome should be "tracked and arrested immediately for mobilising goons who caused mayhem at Kenol".
  • Citing the 2007/8 post-election violence, that left at least 1,300 people dead, the NCIC said it should be clear to Kenyans that violence is not a solution to any challenge.
