Nkaissery heckled by rowdy youth in Narok

Interior Cabinet Secretary, Major Gen. (Rtd.) Joseph Nkaissery, was on Saturday heckled by a group of opposition supporters while addressing mourners in Narok

Nkaissery, who was speaking during the funeral service of the late Letoya ole Magelo, 91, the father to Nairobi County Assembly Speaker, Alex ole Magelo, in Eneng’etia village told off opposition leaders for claiming that the Jubilee administration had neglected the Maa community.

What followed was a political supremacy showdown with Jubilee and CORD leaders in attendance openly engaging in blame game over development or the lack of it in Narok County for the last 50 years.

Nkaissery’s statement that the opposition would lose in the next General Election did not go down well with CORD supporters who shouted him down as he wound up his speech and that of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The disgruntled supporters then marched out of the venue in protest while hurling insults at the CS.

At one point, an irate Nkaissery asked the hecklers whether they were from a tribe in Nyanza who never honour the dead.

Also present was Nairobi County Woman Representative, Rachael Shebesh, who called for sober politicking at the same time challenging Maasai women to vie for various political seats in Nairobi in the 2017 polls.

Former Cabinet Minister, Nicholas Biwott, who has kept off the lime light, called on the Maasai Community to desist from careless sale of land further urging Kenyans to support the Government of the day.

The late Letoya ole Magelo was a respected Narok elder in Maa community.

He is survived by 10 children and a widow Susan Magelo.
