The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Gov­er­nor David Nke­di­anye on Thursday evening was whisked away by his se­cu­rity de­tail fol­low­ing a scuf­fle with Ju­bilee Party sup­port­ers in Mosiro, Ka­ji­ado county. He was forced off the dais af­ter his speech was cut short dur­ing a fundraiser for Mosiro women at Ol­dorko Sec­ondary School. Nke­di­anye at­tended the fundraiser un­in­vited. It was or­gan­ised by JP’s Jonathan Koroine, who is the party’s flag­bearer for the October 26 Mosiro ward by-elec­tion. Nke­di­anye an­gered the crowd t when he urged them not to vote for Koroine be­cause the gov­ern­ment has ne­glected the county. “Those who have come to raise funds for you are mes­sen­gers of doom and can­not be trusted. They will ask for votes and you will never see them af­ter elec­tion,” he said. At this point Ka­ji­ado West MP Moses Sakuda shouted at him, telling him to re­spect them. “No­body has pro­voked you to war­rant such an attack,” he said.
