Drama was today witnessed at Konoin sub-county after William Ruto's ally and Bomet county MP Joyce Korir clashed with the area police officers who were enforcing curfew regulations. The angry legislator said the officers were being used by her political rivals. The OCS was forced to run for his life, after being overpowered by locals who were angrily waiting for handouts being given by the MP.
"Why is it that every time I come here my meeting is disrupted? You are being used for political scores, Corona? What is Corona? We are less than a hundred here as you can see so which rule have we broken," Joyce Korir said.
The officer tried calming her down but she could hear none of it. She sought support from her followers who shouted down the officer and realizing that his life was in danger, he ran away to a nearby police vehicle.
After making a call, the officer came back and pleaded with the members of the public to give him time to explain ."We need to follow the set guidelines, most of you have no masks and mheshimiwa you know that. Don't make my work hard," the officer is heard pleading with her.
The surge of Coronavirus infection informed the decision by the President to ban political functions .. Kenya has recorded more than 4000 fatalities to the virus and more than 200 thousand confirmed cases. Despite the ban, politicians are all over the country campaigning for the 2022 general election. Most of them have gotten the hard-to-find Jab, unlike voters who have not. The politicians have been termed super-spreaders of the virus.
