Interior Cabinet Secretary, Major Gen. (Rtd.) Joseph Nkaissery, was on Saturday heckled by Narok residents while addressing mourners in Eneng’etia village, Narok County.
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 found himself in trouble after he told off opposition leaders for claiming that the Jubilee administration had neglected the Maa community.
What followed was a political supremacy showdown with majority of local leaders mostly elected on Jubilee ticket openly castigating Nkaissery and Uhuru regime over lack of solid development project in Narok County despite voting for Jubilee in 2013.
Nkaissery’s statement that the opposition would lose in the next General Election did not go down well with locals 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 who at this point appeared helpless and resigned to embarrassment and humiliation.
At one point, an irate Nkaissery provoked the heckling locals by asking them whether they were from a tribe in Nyanza who never honour the dead.
This was the fouth time the CS has been heckled in Maa region (Kajiado and Narok)
