A week after Kandara Member of Parliament Alice Wahome made remarks over President Uhuru Kenyatta’s future in politics, fresh clamor has emerged between the Tanga Tanga and Kieleweke factions.
It all started at Kenol town, Murang’a County, with a section of Wahome clashing with rival groups, a drama that escalated to fist fighting.
Led by Alex Mbote, the Kieleweke group stormed a meeting held by Wahome supporters, saying that they will not allow the Tanga Tanga group to tarnish the name of the president, who is the regions kingpin.
"We have given team tanga tanga time to crisscross the county but we are not going to give them space anymore," said Mbote.
The Tanga Tanga faction on the other hand, claimed that the MP’s remarks are a representation of the thoughts of a common mwananchi.
"We are angry when we see the MP being attacked because she had done nothing wrong, she just spoke her mind," said Laban Thuo, who led MP Wahome supporters.
Thuo added that those criticizing Wahome do not have the interests of the people at heart, but aim to please their masters.
