As expected, politics took centre stage during the burial of William Ole Ntimama.
Among the top guests were President Uhuru Kenyatta, Cord leaders Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula. Retired President Daniel Arap Moi was also present.
While addressing the mourners, Raila spoke of how Ntimama was solidly in ODM until his last breath.
He said that the late Maasai leader called him immediately after visiting State House and assured him that he had not defected to Jubilee. Raila also took a swipe at Ruto.
When his time came to speak, President Uhuru did not mince his words, addressing Raila directly and telling him to keep off Jubilee affairs and instead put his own house in order.
He told him that they are the government now and are not in a hurry to go home. Uhuru further mocked Raila telling him, “Kumeza mate sio kula nyama,” meaning the opposition will continue salivating while Jubilee eats the meat.
