Kitui South MP Rachel Kaki Nyamai has denounced the harassment of her Gatundu South counterpart, Moses Kuria, during the Kitui BBI rally last Saturday, 1st February.
The MP said the action was demeaning of the leaders involved, and disrespectful of the lawmaker.
“If a woman sees a stranger or even a thief being beaten in the market, she will cry out for help. I heard a mother shouting that he be thrown out.”
Explaining that she fully supports the BBI Report and demands respect for President Uhuru Kenyatta, Nyamai said Kuria deserved to be treated better by the host, Kitui County Governor Charity Ngilu.
Governor Ngilu sparked a commotion at the meeting after she called for Kuria’s removal from the venue.
Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana, who was reading the region’s proposals to the meeting, told the security guards to leave the Gatundu MP alone.
Governor Ngilu had accused MP Kuria of being disrespectful to President Kenyatta.
“No one will disrespect Uhuru Kenyatta and sit in my meeting. Remove him,” Ngilu had ordered.
However, Kuria was later allowed to access the podium and the meeting continued.
