The rowdy youth, who were shouting ODM slogans, first blocked his convoy before they accosted him, forcing Owalo to get on a motorbike to flee from the area.
His brigade attempted to engage the fiery youth only to give up after they were overwhelmed.
Owalo harshly condemned the incident, calling for peaceful campaigns.
"Personally I want to conduct an issue-based campaign devoid of violence.”
“We need to create an enabling environment for the people of Kibra to elect a candidate of their choice.”
“They should do so based on the candidate's track record and agenda.”
“Let us have peaceful campaigns.”
"I do not want to be involved with violence.”
“I would also want aspirants to put their ideas on the table and deviate from a contest of personalities.”
“My stronghold is my ideas and not my community," Owalo responded.
