Nairobi - A Kenyan legislator was "fiercely" attacked by an angry woman after he engaged in politics during a funeral in Kakamega County.
Senator Bonny Khalwale, who represented Kakamega County in Western Kenya, was attacked by the enraged woman who tore him down for politicking during the funeral over the weekend.
According to KTN, Khalwale, who was busy having a go at his political rival, the Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, was stopped in his tracks by the woman, who asked him to respect the funeral of the late woman.
"You do your work and he (Oparanya) does his. We are at a funeral, show some respect," the woman said in vernacular.
The scene threatened to turn ugly as Khalwale's guards intervened to stop the woman from embarrassing the senator.
The incident happened just a week after Oparanya asked leaders in the region to stop politicking at funerals as it showed gross disrespect to the deceased and their families, according to The Standard.
Oparanya said that leaders who attacked others at funerals must stop the trend, arguing that Kenyan politics had matured and that politicians should not go back to the old ways.
A report by The Star indicated that in 2015, an MP for Garissa Town in northern Kenya, Aden Duale, put up a motion in the Kenyan Parliament which sought to ban political talk at funerals, but that law did not come to fruition.
