Chaos erupted at Jacaranda Grounds on Sunday, June 19 as Kenya Kwanza and Azimio Supporters clashed.

Police were forced to lob teargas to disperse the rowdy youth. 

In videos seen by Nairobileo.co.ke, a section of the youth was seen pelting stones at each other and police officers. 

On Sunday morning, a contingent of police officers was seen at Jacaranda before they withdrew. Reports indicate two people were injured in the mayhem and one arrested. 

It emerged on Sunday that two groups had booked the venue with Kenya Kwanza and Embakasi East MP Babu Owino claiming the venue.  

Deputy President William Ruto urged his supporters to turn up in large numbers for the Kenya Kwanza rally at Jacaranda grounds. 

The Kenya Kwanza fraternity and the entire hustler nation wishes a blessed Sunday to all na tukutane Jacaranda after church,” Ruto tweeted.

On the other hand, Owino told his supporters to steer clear of the venue.  

“I had booked Jacaranda Grounds for my function today and notified the police while Ruto booked the same venue on the same day but in 2021 as per their notification letter. I have full rights to use this ground today but let my People stay at home coz we love peace,” he tweeted.
