Greedy MPs 'burried' by civil society members

17 January 2013, 09:18

Nairobi - The Standard reports civil society activists conducted a mock burial to bury excesses associated with former members of the Tenth Parliament just a day ahead for party nominations to pick candidates to contest leadership positions in the March 4 vote.

They sang dirges and wailed as they marched towards Parliament Buildings, carrying 222 mock coffins, as a mockery of the former MPs’ attempts to legislate hefty sendoff perks, including the State offsetting their funeral expenses.

The march began at Uhuru Park’s Freedom corner at 8am with hundreds of protestors wearing black T-shirts to symbolise the solemn occassion.
