The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Women sup­port­ers of Ki­tui Deputy Gover­nor Peninna Malonza tem­po­rar­ily dis­rupted a burial cer­e­mony in Kauma, Ki­tui West, on Satur­day. They were an­gered when Trade ex­ec­u­tive Jonah Mwinzi read Gover­nor Julius Malombe’s con­do­lence mes­sage, in­stead of Malonza, dur­ing the mass burial of five fam­ily mem­bers killed in a road ac­ci­dent. When Mwinzi fin­ished read­ing the mes­sage, the women at­tempted to snatch the mi­cro­phone from him, prompt­ing an al­ter­ca­tion. They urged Malonza to read the gover­nor’s mes­sage as they tried to wrest the mi­cro­phone from him. For­mer Lands Cab­i­net Sec­re­tary Char­ity Ngilu and area MP Fran­cis Nyenze were present.
