A standoff ensued at Kitui BBI rally after Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria were denied a seat at the dais.
Video footage of the incident showed the Gatundu MP being roughed up from the dais by a group of people.
Reports making rounds on social media alleges that the two leaders were ordered to seat among the crowd that had turned up at the rally after it happened that the two had no seats allocated for them.
However, according to City Lawyer Donald Kipkorir, the two leaders had breached protocol, and therefore, had themselves to blame for the push and pull.
He added that the Tanga Tanga leaders had got it wrong for arriving after the chief guest, ODM leader Raila Odinga.
“In every function, protocol dictates the last person to arrive in the VIP dais is the Chief Guest. In BBI Rallies, the Chief Guest is Baba Raila Odinga … it is out of order for Moses Kuria & Kipchumba Murkomen to be arriving after Baba … They shouldn’t be allowed,” tweeted Kipkorir.
