Religious leaders from Migori County have castigated the violence that marred Orange Democratic Movement rally in Migori and left at least two people nursing gunshot wounds.

PEFA church Bishop, Dr John Okinda, has called on security officers to investigate the chaos and take action against politicians linked to the violence that rocked the rally.

Bishop Okinda says the leaders who will be found culpable should be barred from participating in the August polls to serve as a lesson to violent politicians.

His sentiment were echoed by Bishop Esau Jobando of Caring Africa Outreach church who appealed for political tolerance in Migori County saying that politicians should compete through policies.

ODM leaders among them Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, who is also the deputy party leader, Senators James Orengo, Anyang’ Nyong’o and several officials and aspirants were in Migori to attend a campaign launch for Suna East Member of Parliament, Junet Mohamed, when the violence broke out.
