Drama in Mumias West as MP Salasya’s microphone snatched mid-speech

A video screengrab shows Mumias East MP Peter Salasya being tossed off the stage at the Bukaya Catholic church in Mumias West, Kakamega County during a scuffle after his microphone was snatched by an unidentified man on November 12, 2023.

A Sunday service at the Bukaya Catholic church in Mumias West, Kakamega County came to a standstill as Mumias East MP Peter Salasya got into a tussle with a man believed to be a supporter of Kakamega governor Fernandes Baraza.

Tension started when the Mumias East legislator took to the podium to talk about the revival of Mumias Sugar Company and reforms in the sugar sector when the unidentified man emerged from the crowd to snatch the microphone from the MP.

A war of fists ensued until the police swung into action to restore law and order to allow the church Harambee to continue as planned.

Mumias West MP Johnstone Naika was the host of the event, while the speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula was the chief guest accompanied by Governor Barasa.
