 A section of Jubilee campaigners was on Tuesday attacked and injured during a campaign trail in Ukambani region.

The campaign team comprising a group of businessmen from Thika town were attacked as they were drumming up support for the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.

During the incident, several vehicles were damaged.

The group has blamed Mwingi North MP Gideon Mulyungi for planning the attack.

According to the team's chairman, Chege Wa Gathu, youth who were on motorbikes pelted their caravan with stones as they left Mwingi town at the end of a tour of Kiambu, Machakos and Kitui Counties.

 "We have received information that the irate youth had been incited by Mwingi MP who had sent men driving in a Probox (car) and a white Lexus to trail us up to Mwingi," Mr Gathu stated.

They have called on security agencies to investigate the matter and prosecute the perpetrators.
