Drama ensued at the Kitui BBI forum after the arrival of Tanga Tanga leaders.
Majority leader of Senate Kipchumba Murkomen and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria were denied a seat at the dais.
The two were blocked by security personnel from accessing the podium where ODM leader Raila Odinga, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu had sat.
The crowd at the stadium after seeing that the two leaders were being frustrated, began chanting ‘Wapewe Viti’.
Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwa who read the resolutions by the Ukambani leaders, was forced to cut it short after the chaos erupted.
Things got ugly and Kuria was chased away from the podium.
In an act of defiance, the controversial MP opted to sit on the ground in front of the podium.
The move angered Ngilu who ordered for his removal from the event.

The new Kiambu Governor James Nyoro joined Ngilu in demanding that Kuria is thrown out of the ceremony.
According to the Kitui governor, the ally to Deputy President William Ruto was not welcome at the event after insulting President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Let him be thrown out of my event. He cannot bring violence at my event. No one can abuse President Uhuru Kenyatta and be allowed to grace my event,” remarked Ngilu.
Prior to the chaos, Kuria’s arrival to the BBI forum caused a temporary disruption to the proceedings.
This caused the MC to acknowledge him in a bid to get back to the program.
