Speaking on Wednesday, the former Nairobi senatorial aspirant claimed that he has been facing mistreatment from politicians allied to Deputy President William Ruto.

He cited an incident where he was denied a chance to speak in Narok County, even after being enlisted in the list of speakers at a funeral service.

He narrated how Narok South MP Korei Ole Lemein refused to hand over the microphone to him, which he says amounts to political intolerance and hostility.

"Mara mingi nakuwa abused. Nakumbuka kuna siku tukeinda katika hafla kule Narok ila mbunge wa Narok South akakataa kabisa kunipa microphone (I am being abused on many occasions. I remember one occasion where we went for a function in Narok, but the Narok South MP refused to hand over the microphone to me)," he said on Milele FM's Kivumbi Show.

This came before the recent dress-down where Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa snatched away the microphone from him during a funeral service in Jilore, Malindi in Kilifi county.

He has also been subjected to bashings alongside the party boss Raila Odinga, which Sifuna also termed as an abuse on the party and its leadership.

He also accused Ruto's group of insincerity, claiming that it is using tricks to prevent the party from maximising on such functions to engage in politics.

"Wanatangatanga wanapohudhuria matanga kazi yao ni kutusi chama cha ODM na Raila, ila sisi tunapohudhuria wanasema sio mikutano ya kisiasa (When the tangatanga group attends funeral functions, they use them as a platform to insult ODM and Raila yet when we attend the same functions they rule out politicking)," he added.
