Party loy­alty cru­sader Outa leaves in-law’s fu­neral for rally

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Not even his mother-in-law’s fu­neral could keep Nyando MP Fred Outa from an ODM rally in Kisumu on Satur­day. The MP, a cru­sader for party loy­alty, abruptly left the cer­e­mony in Aila vil­lage, Si­aya, with his col­leagues who had landed in a chop­per on their way to the rally. Outa had early hinted to the press that he would make a big an­nounce­ment when his po­lit­i­cal friends ar­rived, but he left with­out even no­ti­fy­ing fam­ily mem­bers. His state­ment forced the pre­sid­ing priest to give the fam­ily an ul­ti­ma­tum – ei­ther he pre­sides over the ser­vice or hands over to the politi­cians, take his leave and let the rev­erend wind up. The fam­ily chose to go on with the ser­vice. But when politi­cians ar­rived, they only stayed for less than 10 min­utes.
