Violent protests erupted after Shem Onyango Kwega, a candidate for a parliamentary seat in Kisumu in general elections due in March, was killed by unidentified armed men on October 30 while driving in town. Kwega, the local branch chairman of Prime Minister Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), was shot in the head and later died at the hospital while his wife was seriously wounded in the same attack. Four people were wounded by bullets during confrontations with the police and a police officer was hit by a stone hurled by the protesters.
