Shame on You! Jubilee Senator Attacks Ngilu Over BBI Rally

Kitui governor Charity Ngilu is under sharp criticism after ordering the eviction of Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria from the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally held at the county on Saturday, February 1.

Ngilu was heard urging supporters to eject the vocal legislator after he had arrived accompanied by several MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto including Kipchumba Murkomen, Kimani Ichung’wa and senator Aaron Cheruiyot among others.

“Nobody will abuse our President Uhuru Kenyatta and sit in this meeting! Atolewe!” Ngilu shouted.

After a scuffle that lasted several minutes, Kuria forced his way back into the dais and was given seats together with Murkomen but was not allowed to address the tension-soaked rally.

The move by the Kitui boss caused a stir online with many Kenyans criticising Ngilu.

Among them is nominated Jubilee senator Millicent Omanga who blasted the governor for failing and misleading the people.

“When a governor takes a mic to tell the crowd “ATOLEWE” but people responds back “APEWE KITI” tells you that in this country some leaders are really failing people. If we can’t tame some (mis)leaders this country will sink. Kenyans are peacefully living people, Shame on U!!” she posted on Twitter.

Quite unfortunate and completely unacceptable. This is not building bridges. This is pretense. Hypocrisy. If we keep quiet on this one, we shall be judged. Meting violence on Kuria in #BBIInKitui rally was the new low our politicians have sunk and they wan to take us with them,” added blogger and influencer Lord Mutai.
