According to a report by Capital FM, the police officers disrupted the event that had been convened by UDA Secretary General Veronica Maina over Covid-19 regulations.
The party has been holding meetings with aspirants to explain itâ€™s ideologies, manifesto and itâ€™s constitution, the latest having been on May 28 in Nakuru
The meeting involved aspirants from the counties of Tharaka Nithi, Embu, Laikipia, Isiolo, Marsabit and Samburu.
In a video that surfaced online on Monday, The Meru Division Officer, who was accompanied by uniformed officers, is seen arguing with the organisers of the party.
The DO argued that the event had been illegally constituted while the attendees maintained that they were following the set rules.
â€œBefore we start doing anything else, people disperse and go home.
“We do not need a police permit for this. It’s not a public rally,” Veronica Maina, denying accusations that the meeting was a rally convened without the police’s knowledge.
