Bungoma: DP Ruto-Allied MP Steals The Show At Funeral As Mourners Cheered Him To Amazement Of Raila

Kimilili constituency Member of Parliament Didmus Wekesa Baraza has stolen the show in a funeral in Bungoma after mourners cheered him louder than any other politician present at the venue including Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga.

This follows after the lawmaker, who is a close ally to the deputy Dr William Ruto attended a funeral of Mama Selina Nasike Wangamati, mother to Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati and was recognized by the master of ceremony and later on, given time to address the mourners.

It began when the master of ceremony for political leaders Wafula Wamunyinyi, who is Kanduyi MP realized that Barasa had arrived at the event while he was leading the program, where his job was invite fellow politicians to address the mourners.

Wamunyinyi wanted to call on Tongaren MP Dr Eseli Simiyu to go to the pulpit to make his remarks. However, he noticed Barasa had arrived and he decided to invite him to speak to the gathering first before Dr Eseli.

When Wamunyinyi mentioned the Kimilili lawmaker, cheers, ululations and whistles filled the venue making the other politicians, majority of whom were allied to the opposition watch in amazement. Cheers continued until Barasa began to speak.

Barasa sent his condolences to Wangamati's family and began discussing the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum politics where he called on its proponents to incorporate views of all Kenyans in order to make the process inclusive and more acceptable.

Barasa is among the best performing Members of Parliament in Kenya in utilization of Constituency Development Funds (CDF) to implement development projects such as construction of schools, drilling of boreholes and maintenance of roads among others.
