Miss Tourism beauty competition ended on a sour note after Ahadi Trust Executive Director Stanley Kamau confronted Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria accusing him of undermining the organisation's activities.

Drama unfolded when the two confronted each other in General Ihura stadium, with some youth threatened to rough up Kamau.

They claimed Kamau's continued activities have portrayed the region negatively. The marauding youth only stopped when they realised the presence of the media.

Kamau told Kuria that there could have been more beauty pageants had they not been rendered immobile by jigger infestations.

"I cannot allow some people to continue frustrating my efforts to help the poor who have been ignored for decades," said Kamau.

The Gatundu South MP had declared Mt Kenya region free from jiggers, and called for the stop of the campaigns since it was hurting the community. He was supported by Governor Mwangi wa Iria, who said people were referring to Murang'a as a jigger county.
