Jubilee government humiliating the opposition, says Khalwale

16 November 2015, 11:19 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - The outspoken Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale on Saturday walked out of the Presidential function where Kibabii University was granted a charter.

Khalwale, who has been vocal in criticizing the Jubilee administration on corruption and other issues affecting the country, was denied entry into the presidential dais by the security agents as he struggled to access it.

Khalwale, who was in the company of Tongaren Mp Dr Eseli Simiyu and Mt Elgon Mp John Serut were forced to eat the humble pie and sat in the tent meant for County ministers and MCAs.

But when he could not withstand any more embarrassment after he was provided with a plastic chair to sit on, Khalwale popularly known as Bullfighter decided to walk out alongside Dr Simiyu as the crowd jeered while others cheered them.

Addressing the press before boarding a chopper, Khalwale said that it was embarrassing for the Jubilee administration to continue humiliating leaders in opposition.

“I have looked at the program and the opposition has not been given a chance to speak, I think the presidential press unit did it knowingly so that they can humiliate us and you have seen yourselves the way my brother Eseli and I have been treated. I can’t continue sitting here and looking like a beggar,” said Khalwale.

He said that he had another function in Kakamega County especially in Mumias Sub-county where he was to fundraise for boda boda riders.

However, Senate minority leader who is also the Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula arrived shortly after Khalwale had left and was given a seat at the Presidential pavilion where he sat pensively.

Wetang’ula told President Uhuru Kenyatta that the opposition will continue to criticize the Jubilee administration until issues affecting the country are addressed.

“Mr President, the opposition will not sit down and watch as Kenyamns are being humiliated by your government. As the opposition, we will continue pointing fingers at your administration,” said Wetang’ula.

In a quick rejoinder, President Kenyatta told off Wetang’ula, saying that insults do not translate to criticism.

“My brother Wetang’ula you are fond of abusing my administration; come together and let’s dialogue instead of throwing insults all the time,” said Uhuru.
