Bad leadership and corrupt government are viruses that have plagued many African nations for years. If it is not a case of embezzling public funds, it is elected officials not meeting up with their manifesto promises.
The latter was the case for the residents of one Kenyan community who had had it up to their necks. The angry Mbeere South residents are allegedly tired of their Member of Parliament’s (MP) poor performance and non-implementation of his 2017 pre-election promises.
To this end, they chased him after he showed up at one of the functions in the region unexpectedly.
The lawmaker, Geoffrey King’ang’i, chewed up more than what he could handle when the frustrated residents forced him to flee from the public function.
Photos catching fire on social media showed the first term Jubilee lawmaker who is a retired Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) colonel running for his dear life as the locals pursued him.
“Mbeere South residents chased away their MP Geoffrey King’ang’ i after he failed to deliver any viable project since he was elected in 2017,” Almamy Moha tweeted.
A section of Kenyans from the region accused the MP of gross misconduct, embezzlement of CDF and abuse of office.
In July 2020, a report released by parliament watchdog Mzalendo Trust ranked King’ang’i as one of the most silent MPs who contributed little in the floor of the House.
The annual parliamentary scorecard revealed the legislative output of the third session of the 12th parliament was exceptionally low compared to other sessions, with a staggering 21 MPs making no contribution in 2019.
Is it commendable that this community took this sort of drastic step to protest the leadership of their elected official?
