Butere MP turned away as an intruder at State House
Butere MP Tindi Mwale was yesterday turned away from the State House meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and a section of leaders from the Luhya community.
The MP said he was informed at the gates of State House that his name was not on the list of leaders invited to the meeting.
“I was informed on Monday that the President had invited us to State House. I therefore left the house in time but when I reached at the gate, an orderly told me that my name was not on the list,” said Mwale.
He added: “He told me that there might have been some typing error and that I wait outside as he went in to confirm if I was really wanted in the meeting.”
The lawmaker said he waited at the gates for about twenty minutes but there was no response and that is when he decided to leave. He wondered why his name was not on the list.
“I was surprised because the information I had was that the meeting was for all political leaders from the Western region, including sitting MPs,” he said.
