In a video making rounds online, the youth were heard chanting ‘pesa zetu’ (our money) outside the party offices associated with Deputy President William Ruto.
Some netizens alleged that the youth were demanding pay after booing ODM leader Raila Odinga and asking him to support the wheelbarrow movement at Burma market.
“Trouble at UDA offices on Riara Road as thousands of youths storm it demanding to be paid money owed to them,” ODM communications director Philip Etale wrote on Twitter.
kenyagist.com reached out to Hustler Nation Spokesman Dennis Itumbi who claimed that the youth had been sent by politicians allied to the Kieleweke team.
Itumbi also sent videos where two young men claimed that they had been sent to the UDA offices by some politicians.
“A friend of mine told me that a certain politician was dishing out money at Uhuru Park, and so we left in the hope of getting a share.
“So, when we went to Uhuru Park, we were ferried by a bus outside the UDA offices. We had been asked to demand for Ksh2,000 when we arrived here,” one Simon Kamau narrated.
kenyagist.com, however, cannot independently verify if the claims are true.
The incident came a day after ODM Leader Raila Odinga was booed by a handful of Ruto supporters at Burma market in Nairobi.
He was in the company of former Starehe MP Maina Kamanda and Suna East MP Junet Mohammed, drumming support for the BBI report when the incident took place.
