He had a swollen face and a red eye.
Rutto said police officers threw a teargas canister at him when he asked why some youths had been arrested.
Samoei said an officer tried to hit him with a stick but the Governor’s security thwarted the move.
“Around ten or more police officers retreated and lobbed tear gas canisters directly at the Governor in quick succession,” he said.
Samoei said Rutto sustained a cut that made him bleed.
“He was administered first aid on his way home where a doctor dressed the wound,” he said.
