Aron Cheruiyot, Kipchumba Murkomen, Kimani Icungwa, and Moses Kuria deliberately showed up late for #BBIKitui. This seems to be a plan TangaTanga has come up with as a means of interrupting BBI forums and making news. (They did the same in #BBIMombasa but after today am sure it wouldn’t be allowed to happen again).
The TangaTanga quartet then went ahead to demand that they are allowed to go all the way and sit at the front of the dias; which was already full. This was despite the fact that the meeting had started and Governor Kibwana was reading the BBI expectations of Kamba-Eastern.
Then a small group of their supporters – who had so very obviously being transported to the event and strategically stationed near the media – started shouting Kuria’s name. They actually managed to interrupt Governor Kibwana’s presentation for a few minutes. However, Aaron, Icungwa & Kipchumba ultimately agreed to sit as directed.
Moses Kuria – being Kuria – decided to be a cartoon and fight about it. He nearly got ejected and seriously beaten up for it. But he got his 15 mins of fame for seating on the ground. But even he didn’t manage to interfere with the program and after this brief interlude, the meeting continued. And ended well.
The question people are now asking is why it is only Kuria who got mishandled. Or did he actually think he could stop reggae!
