Battle of supremacy between Kieleweke and Tangatanga cover burial ceremony in Kangema. A family had lost five members in a car crash on Sunday.

Politician clashed over burial funds in the run-down house in Nyakahuru village in Kangema, Murang'a, on Wednesday afternoon.

Expressions were pointing as the rivalry between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto presented through their associates.

John Kamau lost his child, his sister, his brother, his brother's wife and child.


The President Uhuru Kenyatta presented Sh1 million via Kangema MP Muturi Kigano.

On the other hand,  DP gave Sh300,000 through Kandara MP Alice Wahome and Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro. Ruto said he would support further, on a less official stage, as needed.

MP Kigano said the President had invited him to State House in the morning and had pledged to support the family's burial preparations.

But when Wahome and Ndindi arrived at the home, Kigano said the President didn't need help in financing the burial.

He said, however, no contributions would be declined as the family needs as much help as possible.

 MP Kigano cautioned DP's fans for visiting his constituency without informing him. An all-important lawn issue was established.
In his speech, he asked leaders to shun politics, restrain themselves and confine their efforts to condoling with the family.

The legislator also mentioned an event in which Ndindi and a group of Kieleweke MPs led by Maina Kamanda clashed at Gitui Catholic church in Kiharu last year, finishing in Ndindi's arrest.

MP Ndindi said, however, that the deaths of the five family members affected him personally and he had come to represent the Deputy President and convey his condolences.

"Such a thing has never been seen before in Murang'a. Such things do not have boundaries. Anyone can visit the family to support and comfort them," he said.

The Kiharu lawmaker lauded the President and other leaders for their assistance.

Wahome said she had reached out to Muturi's staff and was informed he was in a meeting.

"But this is not a happy event. Nobody would want to be in such a situation. Any person coming with goodwill should be welcomed," she said.

"You cannot start giving restrictions to people who want to help. We also understand that this is not a place to play politics. We are hustlers and this is a hustler home that needs support," she said.
