CID officers probe MP over Migori chaos

17 September 2014, 14:03 Oduor Omondi

Migori - Suna East Member of Parliament, Junet Noor Mohammed, was Monday questioned for hours by Criminal Investigations Officers in connection with the infamous chaos at a Presidential function in Migori town recently.

Mohammed was escorted to the Migori police station by Senators James Oreno (Siaya), Johnston Muthama (Machakos), Borny Khalwale (Kakamega) and Ugunja MP, Opiyo Wandai.

They entered the sleuths’ offices a few minutes before 2.00pm and Mohammed was to record his statement for more than four hours as hundreds of ODM supporters and curious Migori residents waited outside.

Mohammed recorded his statement before Migori County Director of CID, Violet Makhanu, and emerged out of the room later to confirm to his enthusiastic ODM supporters and constituents that he was innocent.

The three senators, Mohammed and Wandai were later to drive to the Posta grounds in Migori town centre where they addressed a mammoth crowd, urging them to remain focused and steadfast on the referendum.

“We are aware Mohammed and his colleagues are being persecuted to divert attention from the referendum race. Whether they like it or not, the referendum will have to take place to help solve the many burning issues in the country,” said Orengo.

The group claimed Mohammed’s and Nyatike MP, Edick Anyanga’s names were being wrongly dragged into the chaos and blamed it all on Governor Obado.

They cautioned the Governor to stop politicizing the matter, saying he was well aware of the genesis of his heckling.

"President Kenyatta was only a victim of circumstances as he found himself in the war between Obado and his subjects who are not happy with his leadership,’’ said Mohammed.

The Legislator has since come out in the open denying involvement in the Migori chaos that really embarrassed the head of state while he was on official function in Migori County.

The incident has received condemnation from all parts of Kenya, many of whom have termed it purely political.

Although some leaders from Migori claim the chaos were solely directed at the area Governor, Zachary Okoth Obado, by dissatisfied rowdy boda boda taxi operators, other Kenyans term it unwarranted, primitive, barbaric and ill-timed.

During the melee, Obado was heckled and stopped from addressing the gathering in the presence of President Kenyatta who was also forced to cut short his speech when the chaos persisted.

Six people have so far been arraigned in a Migori Court for causing disturbance at the Presidential rally where Uhuru was to launch a multi-million anti-malaria campaign.
