Kaparo, Zani clash at legislative meeting

It started when Dr Zani took more time to ask questions than the time allocated by Mr Kaparo, who was the moderator of the session.

Efforts by Mr Kaparo to stop her presentation fell on deaf ears as Dr Zani kept on hammering points that the electoral commission was not ready for the polls.

A plenary session at the second annual Legislative Summit turned chaotic after National Cohesion and Integration Commission Chairman Francis ole Kaparo clashed with Orange Democratic Movement secretary-general Agnes Zani over the preparedness of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to hold this year’s General Election.

“There is a problem with the voters register that should be accessed by all political parties for scrutiny. When we ask questions we are told that we are not within reasonable margin. What is reasonable margin?” Dr Zani said.

Mr Kaparo told her to stop, but she went on, as a section of the attendants cheered her on. Dr Zani became emotional, asking the participants whether to continue or not, to which they replied, “Endelea (go on!)”.

She shouted: “Kenya hoiyee!”

The move seemed to irk Mr Kaparo even more as he threatened to throw some members out of the hall.
