Self-proclaimed grandson of the late ex-President Mwai Kibaki has today attempted to disrupt his state funeral service, which was being held at Nyayo Stadium, just minutes after President Uhuru Kenyatta concluded paying tribute to the departed ex-President.

The man made his way to a podium that was designated for the clergy and asked for an opportunity to pay tribute to his alleged grandfather.

The man, who is known as Alex Makana, was however cordoned off by Archbishop Anthony Muheria who was addressing the congregants.

Allan Makana hit news headlines last week after he stripped and cried uncontrollably at the Parliament buildings where the body of the departed ex-President was lying in state.

Allan Makana caused drama outside parliament during the public viewing of the late former President Mwai Kibaki’s body.

In a video that went viral, 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 was heard questioning why his supposed grandfather had gone too soon as he alleged to be Kibaki’s distant grandchild.

“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
