” .. 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 trouble with the journalists after he attempted to deny them a chance to cover speeches by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang’ula.

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.

They declined to address the MCAs and demanded the media back terming what they wanted to talk about as national. 

It took the intervention of Devolution CS Eugene 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 later apologized.

There was drama on Saturday in a meeting between Western leaders and MCAs who had convened to discuss the  Constitutional (Amendment)Bill, 2020 currently before 47 county assemblies.

The meeting held at Golf hotel in Kakamega was meant to rally the ward reps to support the Constitutional review through the BBI.

However, rowdy MCAs kept chanting the word money as some said they had been promised out of pocket cash but they never received the money.
