The Star had reported that the Saturday meeting with Western Kenya MCAs turned chaotic forcing Sifuna to leave without addressing them.

The meeting held at Golf hotel in Kakamega was meant to push for the support of BBI but the MCAs reportedly demanded money saying they had been promised pocket cash but they were not given.

“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,” the MCAs said.
