Furious youth storm MP’s event demanding he respects DP Ruto

Angry youth stormed Kesses MP Mishra Kiprop’s event on Monday the 29th of June 2020, asking that he respects Deputy President William Ruto.

Mishra was holding an event to distribute bursaries to schools in his constituency. The schools will further use the awards to purchase buses, among them Hills Girls Secondary School.

However, the rowdy youths showed up disrupting the whole event even as the police desperately tried to calm them down. Despite their rage, the youths did not act violently while relaying their message contrary to riots in the country. Instead, they chose to hold placards written: “Respect the Deputy President.”

The youths also chanted songs calling for Mishra to stop being a member of Parliament. According to them, this would bring an end to impunity in the area. They further condemned Mishra’s decision at signing the petition that ousted Aden Duale as the majority leader. According to them, Mishra did not make the decision alone as they claimed he was coerced into it.

I did what was right according to my President and party.

However, MP Mishra maintained his position that he was only following President Uhuru’s orders.

“I have signed myself because that is what my party wants. I have no idea whether he (Duale) will be removed or not. At the end of the day, it is the President who is the party leader,” Mishra had said at the time.

According to the MP, this would help solidify and unite Parliament, the government, and the Jubilee party.

“Parliament will be more strong, Jubilee Party will be more strong, the government will be more strong, and I know because some political parties have joined Jubilee.”

At the time of signing the petition, Moses Kuria also questioned whether Kesses and Kieni residents agreed with their leaders.

“Hon Kanini Kega (Kieni) and Hon Mishra (Kesses) have collected signatures to remove Aden Duale as Majority Leader. Kieni & Kesses people, have you sanctioned this?”
