The hullabaloo and chaos that seems to have seeped its way into the United Democratic Alliance party appears to have no end in sight. The outfit which has sought to portray itself as an organised and peaceful movement as opposed to the supposedly violent Orange Democratic Movement party, first found itself in the eye of a storm after reports surfaced about DP’s aide Farouk Kibet who allegedly treats UDA members with disregard, and apparently even slapped a young Nairobi member of parliament. Coming hot on the heels of this is now the threat of bodily harm against lawyer Brain Weke by a prominent UDA member. All this comes in the wake of renewed defiance by the DP who has taken to blatantly using words recently flagged by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission.
All this went down on the set of Radio Jambo’s Mazungumzo Wazi Wazi which was hosted by the station’s presenter Bramwell Mwololo. The panel in the studio included Jubilee Party nominated senator Isaac Mwaura, lawyer and activist Brian Weke, and self-confessed Hustler Movement member and staunch DP supporter Gerald Bitok. Amani National Congress party Director of Political Affairs and Head of Strategy Kennedy Omulle Junior was also in on the action.
Following a heated argument about whether or not Nakuru senator Susan Kihika was kicked out of Deputy President William Ruto’s Karen residence on claims of disloyalty, the charged up Gerald Bitok proceeded to speak about the recently read Budget. However, it emerged that Brian Weke was interrupting him, trying to hand him proof that indeed Kihika had been kicked out.
It was at this point that an agitated Bitok warned Weke telling him he was on the verge of slapping him if he didn’t desist from interrupting him. Thankfully it didn’t escalate to that level as Weke appeared to calm down, and the show proceeded peacefully.
Last year witnessed chaotic scenes in the National Assembly during the passing of the Political Parties Amendment Bill. Members of the house engaged in a physical altercation, and Suba South member of parliament John Mbadi, who is also the Minority Leader, had to be sent away from the house after injuring a fellow member.
