Khalwale heckled by Jubilee supporters at funeral

04 September 2016, 16:13 Ben Wafula

Bungoma- Chaos broke out at a funeral in Tongaren constituency pitting camps allied to Jubilee coalition and CORD supporters.

Trouble started when Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale took to the podium and started accusing Bungoma Governor Ken Lusaka of misappropriating the county funds meant for initiating development projects.

"Governor Lusaka you have been using the funds meant for development to ferry delegations to state house to meet with President Uhuru Kenyatta, that is wastage of funds meant for development," said Khalwale.

Pointing fingers at Mr Lusaka, this annoyed the governor’s supporters who moved forward ready to attack him but he was saved by his bodyguards and CORD supporters who surged forward and surrounded him.

The incident took place in Brigadier village during the burial of Mama Dinah Nasike (88) the mother to Likuyani Mp Enock Kibunguchy.

Supporters of the two coalition exchanged kicks and blows forcing the few police officers at the scene to intervene.

Mourners were forced to scamper for safety as the supporters of the two camps started using plastic chairs as weapons.

A few individuals sustained soft tissue injuries and were rushed to nearby health facilities for treatment and later discharged.

Governor Lusaka later moved aside and addressed the press.

He condemned Khalwale for using insulting words that angered his supporters.

"We can't accept leaders like Khalwale come all the way from Kakamega to insult me. He should respect the institutions that put me in place. If he is sure of any funds misappropriations let him use the right channel not speaking lies," noted Lusaka.

He said the funeral service had been disrupted because of selfish leaders who want to belittle others.

" I'm an elected leader and I need to be respected by all and sundry, if anyone thinks that he has guts to abuse at will, it can't happen," said Lusaka.
