Protestors in Kisumu on Wednesday brought to a standstill the World Consumers Rights Day celebrations in Kisumu.
The event which was organised by the Communication Authority ended prematurely as exhibitors packed their belongings and left.
The protestors had just finalised their anti-government protest in the lakeside city called for by Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
The demonstrators stormed the venue to seek an audience with the ICT and Digital Economy CS Eliud Owalo.
They claimed Owalo was being used by President William Ruto to destabilise the region and go against Raila.
However, Owalo was not present at the function which was officiallly opened by CAK boss Ezra Chiloba.
Chiloba and a host of other leaders at the function were forced to leave in a huff after it became apparent that things were getting out of hand.
The residents after realising Owalo was not present went straight to the catering tent, where they took the food, chased away the participants, ate everything and broke plates and cups in the tent.
One of the protestors asked, " but where do these people get this sweet and nice food with these hard economic times."
Another asked those in the function why they were not participating in the demos.
"You can't come to Kisumu to celebrate while we are mourning meaning you people are happy this event will not go on," he shouted.
At the main events podium, they stormed in and sat on the panelist chairs as others carried away seats, cameras and even glass tools that were in the VIP section.
