Nominated Member of Parliament Maina Kamanda’s effort to attend a church service at AIPCA in Nanyuki, Laikipia County, was thwarted after he was turned away by irate congregants.
In videos and photos seen by Kahawa Tungu, the members holding placards and chanting anti-Kamanda slogans blocked the lawmaker from accessing the church.
The crowd accused the 68-year-old of engaging in small fights with youthful politicians from the Mount Kenya region who are opposed to Kieleweke views.
Leaders allied to Kieleweke faction, who were in Kamanda’s company, were also turned away.

This comes a week after the lawmaker clashed with Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro at Gitui Catholic Church in Murang’a County.
Nyoro, who is allied to Tanga Tanga Jubilee group, disagreed with Kamanda over who should invite guests who graced a fundraising ceremony at the catholic church.
