MP Accidentally Insults Speaker Wetangula In Parlament, Forced to Withdraw

On the floor of the legislature on Wednesday, a dramatic scene played out as lawmakers discussed a resolution put forth by a petitioner calling for the return of government properties to their legitimate owners.

A Kenyan resident petitioned the parliament, alleging that tycoons had broken into government-built homes, depriving the legitimate owners of the opportunity to enjoy the uncommon privilege. The houses are typically intended for government workers in low-paying job groups, but wealthy people wind up benefiting from them.

Speaking on the subject, Mavoko MP Patrick Makau said that there are similar homes in a region called Mlolongo in his district. He concurred with the petitioner that the wealthy were gaining from the mansions.

"Such homes can be found in Mlolongo. And it is true that the tycoons rather than the actual owners have benefited from the properties. I can thus relate to the petitioner's suffering, and this House ought to act quickly to guarantee that the homes be returned to their rightful owners "eluded the lawmaker.

The Mavoko lawmaker continued by wrongly calling the speaker "shameful." The MP ended up addressing the speaker while the message was intended for those businessmen who broke into the homes of the poor.

Makau said, "Shame on you, Mr. Speaker," causing Wetangula to step in. You're urging him to be ashamed, aren't you? Wetangula enquired.

The legislator clarified and revoked the initial comment. He declared that he was speaking to those who had broken into government buildings.

"Sorry, Mr. Speaker, but I must leave. Shame on those who invaded! "said Makau.
