  • Angry Youths on Monday, June 29, stormed Kesses MP Mishra Kiprop's event demanding that he respects the Deputy President William Ruto.

    Mirsha was hosting an event to hand out bursary funds to schools for the purchase of buses with Hills Girls' School Secondary School being among the beneficiaries.

    Angry youths, however, disrupted the event asking him to 'respect the DP' with police desperately trying to calm them down.

    The youth, however, did not attack the MP as they made their grievances known using placards written, "Respect the Deputy President".

    The group went on to chant songs and called for his removal from his position as Member of Parliament as they wanted an end to 'impunity'.

    They expressed anger at Mishra's decision to sign a petition to oust Garissa Township MP Aden Duale from his National Assembly Majority Leader position.

    "I have signed myself because that is what my party wants. I have no idea whether he (Duale) will be removed or not, at the end of the day it is the President who is the party leader.

    "Parliament will be more strong, Jubilee Party will be more strong, the government will be more strong and I know because some political parties have joined Jubilee," noted Mishra before the PG meeting where Duale was ousted.

    The irate youth claimed that Mishra was coerced to sign the petition and gave in unlike some of Ruto allies who stood by him.

    According to Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, Mishra and Kieni MP Kanini Kega were responsible for collecting the signatures for Duale's ouster.

    "Hon Kanini Kega (Kieni) and Hon Mishra (Kesses) have collected signatures to remove Aden Duale as Majority Leader. Kieni & Kesses people, have you sanctioned this?" wondered Moses Kuria at the time.

    Duale was ousted following a Jubilee Party Parliamentary Group meeting chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday, June 22.
