What could have turned out to be a huge shame was narrowly averted when a few members of Parliament yesterday restrained former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama from physically attacking Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

Muthama nearly engaged Kalonzo in a fistfight following the latter’s remarks on the ex-wife Agnes Kavindu.

The incident took during the burial of Bernard Nguyu who was the Machakos Regional Presiding Bishop of AIC whom the leaders eulogized as a visionary and exemplary religious leader who believed in both the work ethic and honest living.

The one of a kind gathering had brought together leaders from the Ukambani region including Kalonzo, Muthama, Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni Governor), Alfred Mutua (Machakos Governor), several MPs, and other leaders

Kalonzo had arrived at the burial together with Kavindu towards the end of the ceremony while Muthama was making his speech.

Muthama ended his speech -albeit unceremoniously- following boos after he began criticizing the BBI. Kalonzo who mistook this to mean a ‘hostile’ reception for Muthama threw jabs when he rose to speak.

Kalonzo, who was the last leader to address the mourners, rabble roused when he told Muthama in Kamba that he “will return Muthama’s wife” after the 2022 general election.

“I am telling you that next year, you will see Muthama running to perch on my chest because he knows where we are and where we are going. Even if he gets irritated, I’ll hand over his wife (Kavindu) back to him,” Kalonzo said.

Muthama then swiftly rose from his seat, charged, and headed straight for the Wiper leader.

He was however restrained by MPs Patrick Makau (Mavoko), Victor Munyaka (Machakos Town), and Robert Mbui (Kathiani) forcing the Wiper party leader to also cut short his speech.

The mourners did not spare Kalonzo either with jeers forcing him to also cut his speech.

Earlier, Governor Alfred Mutua who coordinated the VIP protocol had warned politicians against making politically inflammatory remarks at the burial.

“After consulting with the presiding bishop, Abraham Mulwa, we have thought it prudent to advise our political leaders not to politic at this ceremony. We are bidding farewell to a respected clergy and all we are calling for is a peaceful send-off of our bishop,” he said.

Kalonzo, Mutua, Muthama, and Kibwana have not shared a platform for a long time since Muthama and Kibwana ditched the Wiper party for other political formations.
