A picture capturing a woman readying herself to throw a stone during confrontation between the police and protestors in Kisumu has gone viral on social media.

The woman in a grey t-shirt with black tight knee length pants is caught in action launching her missiles at her target with a mob of bystanders watching on in the background.

Kisumu county is one of the opposition strongholds where the voting exercise was paralyzed after protesters engaged anti-riot police officers in running battles during the October 26 repeat presidential election.

Nasa leader Raila Odinga withdrew from his candidature days to the election and asked his supporters to boycott the exercise after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) failed to meet the opposition outfit’s irreducible minimums.

As the polls closed on Thursday evening, IEBC announced that the exercise had been postponed to Saturday October 28 the voting exercise in four counties of Kisumu, Migori, Homa Bay and Siaya which were rocked by violence.
