Kambi dis­re­spects us – Mi­jik­enda el­ders

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

A sec­tion of Kaya el­ders from Kil­ifi and Kwale coun­ties have dis­missed a prayer event at the Kaya­fungo to bless for­mer Labour CS Kazungu Kambi for his gover­nor bid.

The el­ders, drawn from the Jibana, Ribe, Rabai and Kwale kayas, said Kambi dis­re­spected el­ders and broke Mi­jik­enda tra­di­tion by tak­ing ‘for­eign­ers’ into the Kaya For­est.

Speak­ing in Maz­eras town on Satur­day af­ter de­clin­ing to at­tend the pray­ers, Coun­cil of El­ders branch chair­man Eras­tus Kubo said, “Kambi has been in­sult­ing and mis­us­ing us. He has on sev­eral oc­ca­sions re­ferred to us as naked el­ders. How could he in­vite lead­ers who are not from the Mi­jik­enda com­mu­nity to en­ter our sa­cred for­est?” Kambi was un­avail­able for com­ment.
