Mutua condemns leaders turning burial ceremonies into political arenas

Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua has condemned selfish politicians who turn burial ceremonies to political arenas.

Speaking in Itundumimuni, Masinga sub-county-Machakos county, Mutua shamed such behaviour and termed it as selfish and impervious.

Mutua urged leaders to be sensitive and considerate of mourning families.

“Some Kenyan politicians have bad manners. I find it despicable, arrogant and insensitive the way Kenyan politicians dominate funerals with political chest-thumping while family members who have been bereaved suffer,” said Governor Mutua.

“The behaviour of politics in funerals is mainly Kenyan. It is really primitive when you consider how pained bereaved families are. They do not want to hear simplistic tribal kingpin talk, deep state, shallow state, etc. They are heartbroken and all they want is comfort not vile,” he added.

In his speech, the vibrant leader eulogised Senator Kabaka as a close friend and a great senator who fearlessly fought for the rights of the People of Machakos County and Kenya at large.

“We worked well with the late Senator between 2013 and 2017 in my government until he became the Machakos Senator after the 2017 elections. He was a courageous man, a brilliant legal mind who fought for the rights of our people and he will be greatly missed,” Mutua said.

During the burial, mourners walked out on Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka after he took the stage to read President Uhuru Kenyatta’s message of condolence.
