A man hailing from Bungoma has today caused drama outside parliament during the public viewing of the late former President Mwai Kibaki's body.
In a video that has since gone viral, the man identified as Allan Makana made his way to the parliament buildings to pay his last respect but before he could be allowed to view Kibaki's body, he was overwhelmed by emotions and started wailing helplessly, removing some of his clothes.
Allan in his theatrics is heard questioning why his supposed grandfather had gone too soon as he alleged to be Kibaki's distant grandchild.
Police are then seen trying to calm him down in vain.
"Allow me to see him one last time," he told the officers.
"He is my president, he gave me free education, give me time and opportunity to view his body," he said.
Kibaki lying in state
The late former Head of State's body currently lies in state in the parliament for public viewing an exercise that began on Monday, April 25 and is set to be concluded tomorrow Wednesday, April 27.
Prior to his burial, a national funeral service will be held on Friday, April 29 at Nyayo stadium.
He will later be laid to rest at his Othaya home on Saturday, April 30.
Kibaki passed away on April 22 at the age of 90 years.
