Tension remains high in Kabuchai following a series of violent incidents between rival political groups ahead of next Thursday’s by-election.
Supporters of Ford-Kenya candidate Majimbo Kalasinga were on Tuesday attacked as candidates intensified campaigns to woo voters in readiness for the March 4 mini-poll.

One of the supporters, only identified as Junior, said he was attacked by a rival group, escaping death by a whisker.
"It all began when I arrived home to find another aspirant holding a meeting on part of our family land," he said.
He said that at that point he demanded to know why an opponent of his preferred candidate chose his home as a meeting point.
This prompted supporters of Mr Gasper Wafubwa, an independent candidate, to attack him, causing him bodily harm.
He was taken to the hospital by area politician Simiyu Mutaki.
