Drama ensued during the late Nyaribari Masaba Hezron Manduku’s burial in Nyanturago area, Kisii County, after a man was busted soliciting funds from dignitaries and politicians who graced the ceremony.

According to reports, the man, posing as an artist, had cornered the current Nyaribari Masaba MP Ezekiel Machagu in a bid to solicit some money from him.

The suspect was so determined to have his way, that he pushed the MPs, personal assistant, away, as he tried to get the legislator alone.
