Drama as Protesting Kenyan MP Dumps Body at Government Official’s Door Step
A member of the National Assembly Tuesday evening dumped a body of a man at the door step of Nyanza Provincial Coordinator’s office.
The body dumped by Nyakach MP Aduma Owuor at Francis Mutie’s office had arrows stuck on its chest.
Owuor explained that the man, 80, was killed at his home and six herds of cattle driven away by rustlers.
The MP said he took the action after making a call to the official to go to the ground to address the rising insecurity issue in the region but failed to turn up.
“We have even given the authorities names of compromised police officers yet the former Provincial Commissioner and the county commander haven’t taken any action” said Owuor, claiming that police were doing little to curb the situation.
Mutie was absent when the body was dropped at his office at 6.15pm.
Later, Kisumu police boss Musa Kong’oli arrived at Mutie’s office and pleaded with the MP to take the body back to Nyakach. Kong’oli said there is a securitycommittee on the ground that ought to have addressed the concerns being raised by the MP.
The MP stood his ground forcing the police to remove the body to the Star Hospitalmortuary.
“A body is not allowed to be handled the way it is being done to this and according to law, I should take action on the person who brought the body here,” said Kongoli.
Owuor had been accompanied by his supporters to Mutie’s office.
When contacted, Mutie termed the action by the MP as barbaric, noting that investigation into the killing of the old man is ongoing.-standardmedia.co.ke
