A drama ensued on Saturday in a meeting between Western leaders and MCAs convened to discuss the BBI Constitutional (Amendment)Bill, 2020 currently before 47 county assemblies held a Golf Hotel, Kakamega.

The meeting was to rally the MCAs to defend the Constitutional review through the BBI.

However, unruly MCAs kept singing the word money and at one point commanded that ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna leave their meeting terming him a stranger in their meeting.

ODM SG Sifuna left the meeting without addressing them.

MCAs said some of the top ODM officials promised out of pocket cash but they never received the money.

“You have been flying in choppers holding BBI meetings where you never gave MCAs a chance to speak now you have come back to us,” they said.

Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya also found himself in a dispute with the journalists after he strived to deny them a chance to cover speeches by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang'ula.

The drama continued where Governor Oparanya ordered his county enforcement officers to eject the media from the function before inviting the two to speak in what was interpreted as a scheme to give the two a media blackout at the function.

The two leaders refused to address the MCAs and asked the media back terming what they wanted to talk about as national.

It took the intervention of CS Wamalwa to plead with Oparanya to let the media stay.

But the journalists declined to go back and demanded that Oparanya first apologies to them on the microphone the same way he ordered their ejection. He apologized.
