Friday August 1, 2014 - There was drama at State House after Lamu Governor Issa Timammy and his Members of County Assembly (MCAs), among other Lamu leaders refused to meet with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, the last minute and asked to go back to their County.
This is after Uhuru/ Ruto’s men in the name of CID detectives arrested Timammy’s Personal Assistant (PA) in connection with the Lamu killings, prompting a scuffle between security agents and the Lamu politicians.
The MCAs went back to their hotels and stayed indoors for the better part of the day saying they will only agree to meet Uhuru/ Ruto when Timammy’s PA is released.
Timammy too canceled his meeting with Uhuru/ Ruto and rushed to the CID headquarters to secure the release of his PA.
The President and his Deputy were left shocked and were forced to beg the Lamu leaders to meet them and who only agreed after Timammy’s PA was released; that’s why their meeting, which come up with a resolution to revoke 500, 000 land titles in Lamu, ended very late.
The meeting continued today since there were many things left pending because of time.
