A funeral ceremony of Mama Oripha Nekesa Wasilwa in Kibingei village of Kimilili constituency came to a stand still for over thirty minutes after an area MP Didmus Barasa was attacked by a governor Wangamati supporter for castigating the Governor’s development record.
Hell broke loose after the Mp boldly said the greatest mistake Bungoma County made was to elect Wycliffe Wangamati as their governor saying he has done minimum development.
He said with the County receiving billions every financial year, it is unfortunate that the County government officers come to boost of some incomplete ECD classrooms as compared to him with less than four hundred million shillings received under CDF for the last four years he has managed to transform infrastructure across the constituency.
However irate youths beat up the attacker who had snatched the microphone from the Mp for disrespecting their leader and interrupting the funeral before the same MP came to his rescue and whisked him away in his car amid jeers from mourners.
The late who was the mother to former Nzoia Sugar Company managing Director Saul Wasilwa, was later laid to rest by friends church faithful where she was a staunch member.
