Family Blocked Kenyan Main Opposition Leaders From Entering Late Interior Cabinet Secretary’s Compound

Kenyan main opposition leaders were ejected from a meeting at the rural home of former Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery, who died on Saturday.

Kajiado Governor David Nkedianye, Kajiado Central Member of Parliament Memusi Kanchori, and former Kenya Meat Commission chairman Taraiya ole Kores were among the Opposition leaders who were not allowed into Nkaissery’s compound at Ilbisel.

Simaiyai Rakita, who is contesting the Kajiado woman representative seat on a Wiper ticket, was also not spared. She was confronted as she was preparing to enter the gate and told to leave.

A member of Nkaissery’s funeral committee told The Standard that they were under strict instructions from the CS’s family that no leader from the Opposition should be allowed into the compound.

The leaders were, however, allowed to attend a prayer session that was held a few metres from the CS’s compound.
