Jubilee man saved a beating by police in Vihiga
18 September 2016, 11:24
Nairobi - A jubilee parliamentary hopeful aspirant was whisked away by police officers from a crowd that bayed for his blood at Kapsotik Primary school.
The man who had only identified himself as Mudanya was cut short in his speech by choruses of mourners who chanted ‘We don’t want to hear anything about Jubilee’.
“I am the chairperson for Jubilee in the county....” that was the only statement the man managed to say before the crowds refused to listen to him.
The man attempted to address mourners at the funeral of the niece to Vihiga Senator George Khaniri.
The ground was hostile to leaders who came with other parties apart from Musalia Mudavadi’s Amani National Congress.
In the event, Kakamega Senator Bonnny Khalwale tore into Jubilee saying President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have completely lost focus of what presidency entails and should be voted out in 2017.
“The two got into this thing (search for presidency) in 2013 because they had burdens which they wanted Kenyans to help them shed. Now that the ICC burden has been removed, they should profusely thank Kenyans and now give chance to those who can lead the country in the right direction,” Khalwale said.
He implored Mudavadi to join hands with his Cord counterpart Raila Odinga to have a better bargaining power.
