A MAN was killed when the bomb he was apparently trying to assemble near a Kenyan primary school before it hosted a presidential candidate’s rally exploded, police said yesterday.

Residents heard a blast late on Saturday night in the eastern frontier town of Garissa but police said they only identified the site of the explosion caused by an improvised explosive device at a primary school field yesterday. Martha Karua had been expected to speak at the grounds yesterday.
