A section of Kisii MCAs have threatened to file a petition for the removal of South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro as a Majority Whip.

The leaders led by Kisii Deputy Governor Dr. Robert Monda said that they have given Inspector General of the police Japhet Koome 24 hrs. to arrest the Member of Parliament for what they called unruly behavior and disruptions within the county or else they will take matters into their own hands.

“We as the leaders of Kisii County are demanding for the immediate arrest of Hon. Osoro for violence on people and protecting criminals who are in the wanting list of the police. We are giving the government 24hrs to arrest him failure to which we shall know that we are on our own and defend ourselves,” said the MCAs.

This comes after chaos erupted on Tuesday evening between supporters of Kisii County Governor Simba Arati and those of South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro during Paul Ayiema’s father’s funeral ceremony in South Mugirango.

“As members of the Kisii community, we cannot allow our youths to suffer under him. He has to respect the leaders who were chosen by citizens,” added another one.

“Kithure Kindiki, are you in charge of the security of Kenyans including those of Kisii County?” asked Robert Monda

A similar incident was witnessed on 1st February 2021 during a funeral ceremony in Bomachoge Chache where Arati and Osoro exchanged blows in front of President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
