A journalist lost her camera in an event where two people lost their lives on Sunday at Kenol after groups of people clashed.

Alice Wangechi, a Correspondent with The Star lost her camera after the groups clashed and had to be dispersed by police officers.

“When I woke this morning so excited to go to work, I did not know it would be the day I lost my Canon camera, amid the senseless chaos surrounding DP Ruto’s visit.

All in a day’s work, they say. I loved that Camera! 😥😥.” Alice posted.

This comes as the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai ordered investigations into the death of two people.

He further instructed the director of Internal Affairs Unit and two senior directorate of criminal investigations officers to look into the matter and bring perpetrators to book.

The chaos happened before the DP aarived but after disruption of the service which was to start at 9.30am, the service proceeded with host Kandara MP Alice Wahome saying, “Hatumuachi (we are not leaving him).”

Other leaders condemned the act saying it is a shame for fights resulting from political differences.

The DP was accompanied by his allies including Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Kirinyaga Woman Rep Purity Ngirici, nominated Senator Millicent Omanga, Kajiado’s Mary Senata among others.
