The function was being held at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga complex in Kisumu town when a group of youth stormed the premises and went ahead to assault Mr Chiloba.
“Dignitaries were attending the function and also a host of representatives from notable corporation organisations,” the statement read in part.
“He was leaving the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Sports Complex, he encountered the group of protesters,” it further read.
Things took a different turn when Mr Chiloba was leaving heading elsewhere when the youth attacked him.
He however, managed to leave the premises courtesy of his security details and proceeded to another meeting in Ciala Hotel, Kisumu County.

For days now, Kisumu County has seen a spark in demonstrations which have been termed as a curtain raiser to the mega planned opposition rally that is scheduled for Monday, March 20, 2023.
Kisumu leaders led by Deputy Governor Mathew Owili said that the demonstrations will take place on Wednesday and Friday.
This he said was in honour of Azimio leader Raila Odinga who has called for mass actions.
“From next week, the people will be rolling themselves until our demands are heard and action is taken to lower the high cost of living in the country,” he said.
Mr Owili said as the demos will start at 10 am, where leaders from the various subcounties will converge at Kondele first.
Thereafter, the procession will move to the City Square and then to the county commissioner’s office where they will present their petition.
