Nairobi - Rowdy youth disrupted the funeral service of the late Homa Bay Senator Otieno Kajwang and also heckled national assembly speaker Justin Muturi.
The youth descended on the Uhuru Park dais where there would be a body viewing session for the late Kajwang after feeling frustrated over the time it took to view the body.
They had earlier on heckled Muturi when he stood to speak on behalf of the national assembly, which forced CORD leader Raila Odinga to step up and ask them to calm down.
" Please let us allow all people to speak. We are here to celebrate a leader who respected all people regardless of their beliefs, he urged before Muturi was allowed to finish speaking.
