07 May 2013, 09:45

Nairobi - The Star reports KES 16 million was yesterday raised in ten minutes at a harambee for the funeral expenses of the late senator Mutula Kilonzo. 

Political bigwigs and Mutula's legal friends trooped into the All Saints Cathedral, and the master of ceremony Isaac Kaluu started the ball rolling by inviting former Prime Minister Raila Odinga who donated KES 600,000 with the clock at 6.54pm. The function was scheduled to start at 5.30pm.

After Raila's cash, a stream of donations followed and in about five minutes, Kaluu announced that MPs had pledged KES 2million, mourners from Makueni, through governor Kivutha Kibwana, pledged KES 1million.
