Kangundo MP Fabian Kyule Muli has asked politicians to stop engaging in politics at burial ceremonies but should instead look for other places to campaign.
Speaking at Kathaana in Kangundo, Mr Muli was reacting after a burial ceremony for a 27 year-old man turned political after two politicians where given the chance to address people. The two were former MP Katatha Maweu of Wiper Party who emerged third and Rose Wambua of Jubilee Party who was second.
"It is a shame for politicians to turn burials into a political showdown. Today there was a burial for a 27 year-old man and I was surprised to see politics take centre stage. It is unfortunate this is happening just after coming from elections, they should look for other places to campaign," said Muli.
Muli said that the leaders should come together and think how they will bring development to the people of Kangundo and not showing their political might.
"We should come together and think how to bring development to our people of Kangundo and not urging who was number two or number three in politics position has no relevance," added Muli.
He added that politicians waste a lot of time talking such that religious do not have enough time to preach and asked them not to allow politics into burial ceremonies because people are grieving.
