Governor Tunai and MP Ng'eno face off as DP Ruto watches
By Charles Ngeno | February 22nd 2016
NAROK: A governor and an MP yesterday engaged in bitter exchange during a function attended by Deputy President William Ruto.
The face-off between Narok Governor Samuel Tunai and Emurwa Dikirr MP Johana Ng'eno almost degenerated into a fist fight.
A visibly angry Tunai told off Ng'eno whom he accused of lecturing county leaders on development issues yet the MP had failed in managing the Constituency Development Fund.
The two were attending the homecoming ceremony for Environment Principal Secretary Charles Sunkuli at Poroko Secondary School.
"This man has been faulting us yet there is nothing he has done. He keeps on lecturing us to build maternity wards yet he is not married. Go get married before you can tell us about hospitals," said Mr Tunai.
The governor told Mr Ng'eno off over his persistent criticisms on national and county governments and reminded him that he was not in the Jubilee coalition.
The DP watched silently as Tunai tore into Ng'eno who had earlier accused the two levels of governments of not doing enough for the local people.
Present were Energy CS Charles Keter, MPs Katoo ole Metito (Loitoktok), Korei ole Lemein (Narok South), Ken Kiloku (Narok East) and Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete).
Ng'eno had earlier addressed the crowd where he told Ruto that people were not happy that Jubilee had not delivered on its campaign promises.
