Mogotio MP Hellen Sambili was booed during DP William Ruto’s visit to her constituency on Tuesday.
Sambili, an independent candidate, was shouted down by the rowdy crowd as she rose to address the Jubilee rally.
“She is an independent candidate. How dare she storm a Jubilee rally to speak at will?” shouted resident Haron Chemaina.
Chemaina said the MP should respect residents especially since they voted for her for two consecutive terms since 2007.
“Instead of appreciating that she is even qualified for a pension scheme after retiring from politics, she still wants to come back and force her way to Parliament as an independent candidate.”
The resident asked Sambili to concede defeat and allow people time to vote for Jubilee candidates including Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Sambili lost the Jubilee ticket to Daniel Tuitoek after garnering 6,015 votes against his 11,994 votes in the party primaries on April 24.
“Names of my supporters were missing in the ballot and my agents were blocked from voting so I will not accept the announced results for Mogotio constituency,” the MP told the press after. -Star
