“We must ensure that we exercise peace and be cautious in this political rallies. As we speak, some of our reporters lost their phones and equipment they use in doing their daily activities at work,” said Kanze.
The duo spoke during Sunday’s Citizen Nipashe programme.
During the rally, it emerged that Nasa co-principals Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi also lost their handsets.
A mammoth of crowd escorted the five principals, Raila Odinga (presidential candidate), Kalonzo Musyoka (deputy), Isaac Ruto, Musalia and Wetangula, from city hall, to the grounds, on foot.
The five were in their vehicles, as transport was paralysed along the roads used including Jogoo.
