The burial of Kisii deputy governor Joash Maangi’s father Abel Gongera turned chaotic after Dagoretti North Simba Arati took the stage.

Addressing the mourners, Arati, a die-hard ODM Party Raila Odinga supporter, asked Deputy President William Ruto to apologize for the violence meted on the Kisii people in 2007.

Arati was forced to cut short his speech after the mourners jeered him. He accused South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro of inciting the crowd.

Osoro had spoken before Arati. He drummed up support for the self-proclaimed “hustler”.
