Drama as Ndindi Nyoro and Maina Kamanda fight in church, paralyzing service [Video]
Things get noisy, messy and chaotic with many casualties in Jubilee party rivalry
Kamanda was among a team of Kieleweke MPs who were attending a fundraiser at the church when Nyoro stormed the event.
The Kiharu legislator disrupted the event leading to a scuffle as he insisted that being the area MP he is the only one with the right to ivite leaders to events in his constituency.
“I am the MP and I am the only one who can invite people to functions in this constituency. I respect Maina Kamanda as a father and an elder, but I cannot allow him to come all the way from Nairobi to rule Kiharu Constituency,” Nyoro.said.
The church service that was underway was paralysed as Nyoro insisted that it could not go on because he had been left out of the event organized by Kamanda.
The video below, courtesy of Nation. shows the two legislators engaged in a shouting match, baying for each other’s blood in an ugly display of unhealthy political rivalry that has been synonymous with the Jubilee party factions.
Nyoro, a member of the Tanga Tanga faction, said he could not allow the fundraiser to continue because he was not invited in the Jubilee function being held in his constituency.
The event had been attended by about 20 members of Parliament allied to the Kieleweke group which, according to Nyoro, culd not proceed as he had neither been invited neither had he invited the attendants.
Among those who were present during the fracas are Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni wa Muchomba and Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu among others.
