Drama was witnessed in Parliament on Thursday, February 11, 2021 after Nyali MP Mohamed Ali alias Moha Jicho Pevu entered parliament chambers with a gun, causing panic.
Gem MP Odhiambo Elisha Ochieng was forced to rise up and raise the concern after realising that the journalist-turned politician was carrying a gun at his back.
“I have noticed a behaviour which is not of good conduct for a Member of Parliament. I am sure sure we operate under particular codes of behaviour within Parliament..am not aware that a Member of Parliament is allowed to walk inside here with a gun. I have noticed the honorable Ali is carrying something on his back, and that is a gun, then we are not safe,” said the Gem MP.
The issue got the attention of Speaker Justin Muturi, forcing Moha Jicho Pevu to stand up and apologise.
While giving his apologies to the MPs, Moha Jicho Pevu explained that he was prone to forgetting just like any normal human being.
He noted that he only forgot to leave outside the things he was carrying, and accepted to surrender the gun to the sergeant at arms.
He however condemned Hon Odhiambo for raising the matter before the house, arguing that the MP could have just approached him instead.
Moha Jicho Pevu however, maintained that the law allows Members of Parliament to apply for a licensed gun.
He further condemned the lawmakers for personalising the issue and making it a Tanga tanga affair.Do you have any story you would like to share? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will publish it. You can also contact us at email@example.com
