PRO-JUBILEE MPs ATTACKED

Meanwhile Angry youths disrupted the burial ceremony  accusing  MPs Didimus Baraza (Kimilili) and Mwambu Mambonga (Bumula) of selling out Mulemebt nation to President Uhuru Kenyatta after attending a meeting in State House Nairobi.

Trouble started when the first time MP Baraza arrived at the Bwema home as Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula addressed mourners.

The MP was shouted down by the crowd shortly after he was welcomed on the podium to pay tribute to the deceased, Mathew Wafula.

“If you shout at a leader when he is speaking to you, you will never give birth to a leader in your house. Respect me kindly and let me speak my mind,” Baraza said.

But the crowd relented, throwing plastic water bottles at him as they called him a traitor and “tumbocrat”. Police intervened and frisked Baraza away.

Mambonga spoke earlier about going through many difficulties to get his seat, which is why Jubilee invited him to State House.

Wamunyinyi, Wetang’ula and Governor Wycliffe Wangamati also had to intervene and calm the crowd.
