General Miguna Miguna has given words of wisdom to Aisha Jumwa and Orange Democratic Party Secretary Edwin Sifuna following their burial drama.
Dr. Miguna has cautioned them from invoking the names of their respective ethnicity in political contests advising them to speak as Kenyans.
“Being a Mijikenda or Luhya have nothing to do with the one-main authoritarianism in ODM,” Miguna stated.
Mourners attending the funeral of Mombasa Deputy Governor William Kingi’s father were on Friday left in shock after Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa barred ODM secretary-general Edwin Sifuna from addressing mourners.
As Mr. Sifuna began to speak, Ms. Jumwa, who was the master of ceremonies, walked to the stage and grabbed the microphone from him, accusing him of “talking politics during the funeral”.
“We shall not allow this; respect the Mijikenda. Find another platform and speak about issues relating to ODM. We are here to mourn the dead and not politics,” she said as the crowd shouted, some voicing support and others jeering her.
Miguna’s advised has been supported by Kenyans.
