Drama was witnessed within Muhoroni Constituency when the area MP Professor Ayiecho Olweny was forced to leave a funeral ceremony in Nyando county council in a huff after his political archrival James Onyango K‘Oyoo arrived triumphantly at the same function in Nyando.
K’Oyoo arrived in the company of his supporters forcing Olweny to protest bitterly before leaving the place in a huff as two of his bodyguards shot in the air as angry mourners bayed for his blood.
Olweny whose political fortunes have been dwindling very fast protested over the scenario
He equated himself to a river which can not be stopped on its course saying that he is pragmatic leader.
A number of youths were injured during the stampede.
Olweny said that he was grateful that some youths were stabbed as a result of the incident.
“That is what those who are opposing me will get in Muhoroni knife stab” he said in a shrill voice
Both the leaders were attending the burial of the brother of the Nyando County council chairman Samuel Onyango.
Among those present were medical services minister Peter Nyongo and Nyando Mp Fred Out who left the venue amidst tension.
The Muhoroni parliamentary aspirant equated himself to running streams which cannot be prevented at all costs.
Olweny blamed K’Oyoo for the chaos where several people were injured after Ayiecho told his hirelings who were high on drugs to charge “and discipline”Koyoo’s followers.
Nyongo who was also present took to his heels
Among those present were former Muhoroni town council chairman Billy Adero and Nyando aspirant Lumumba Ouya.
