Drama unfolded in Murang’a on Monday, January 6, after supporters of Kandara MP Alice Wahome clashed with a rival group during a press conference.
According to reports, Wahome supporters had convened a meeting to address the media with the intention of defending her over the scathing attacks which have been unleashed on her due to her remarks on President Uhuru Kenyatta.
A rival group then stormed in and disrupted the meeting, minutes after they had started addressing the media.
This is after the second group accused Wahome supporters of planning to ridicule the President which to them was unacceptable.
“We have given team Tanga Tanga time to crisscross the county but we are not going to give them space anymore,” Alex Mbote, who led the other faction, was quoted by People Daily.
The lawmaker, during a recent address, fired salvos at the Head of State accusing him of killing democracy in the country.
Wahome claimed that Uhuru is an existential threat to the nation and alleged a plot to keep him on as the prime minister, with Raila Odinga as president.

However, a section of Central Kenya leaders – led by Kirinyaga County Jubilee Chairman James Muriithi – demanded that the legislator refrains from any future criticism of the Head of State whom they lauded for his efforts in fostering peace.
The leaders also accused Wahome of seeking popularity by attacking Uhuru and claimed she is being paid to attack the President.
