Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala was the center of drama in the just concluded Matungu by election. The youthful senator who was a strong supporter of Peter Nabulindo engaged in all kind of drama.
He was caught in a heated argument with Homabay women representative Gladys Wanga to the point of slapping the lady.
The lady lawmaker had accused the Cleophas of voter bribery allegation. The senator also confronted police officer and accused them of stealing Ksh 2 million from his car. It was not clear what the lawmaker was holding such amount of money for on him in a polling station on an election day.
Voter bribery continues to be a norm in every election in our country. Thus we continue electing leaders on how much give us and not on merit.
