Pictures making rounds on social media showed the three leaders standing behind a host of leaders who had already taken their seats.

According to ODM’s Director of Communication Philip Etale, the leaders missed out on the seats after they arrived late.

“I appeal to handlers of my friend Senator Onesimus Kipchumba Murkomen and his team Hon. Moses Kuria included to always ensure they come early to grab a seat for his boss. We know they have other pressing engagements elsewhere that force them to arrive late for BBI rallies,” wrote Etale.

He added that: “leaders who believe in the course have arrived. Kenyans who believe in the course are seated. Opportunists want to come late to seek attention.”

This is not the first time that the leaders missed out on seats.

You said BBI rallies are a waste of public resources. You then board a chopper to the same rally then expect to be given…
