Opposition criticised for heckling President
By Nikko Tanui | April 3rd 2016
Three URP MPs from the South Rift have castigated the Opposition for heckling President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The MPs accused their fellow legislators of improper behaviour saying they were not ready to lead.
The Opposition last week heckled President Kenyatta in Parliament during his 'State of the Nation' address.
Ainamoi MP Benjamin Langat, Joseph Limo (Kipkelion East) and Hellen Chepkwony (Kericho) said instead of heckling, they should have walked out of the House or not shown up all together.
The Opposition forced the President to take a seat twice as House Speaker Justin Muturi intervened by throwing scores of CORD MPs out of Parliament.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga on Friday slammed Mr Muturi's actions terming them unconstitutional.
"We are telling Raila that he will never become Kenya's president because he condoned the despicable behaviour of the legislators. This country would be chaotic if the Opposition clinched power," said Mr Langat.
Mr Limo said they were in the process of drafting a motion aimed at purging CORD legislators from various committees for allegedly bringing the House into disrepute.

"We are going to severely punish two members of the Opposition by removing them from House committees," said Mr Limo.
