A meeting of Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka was on Saturday briefly interrupted after a snake appeared from the nearby bushes.
The snake caused a moment of commotion during the meeting held at Musyoka’s Yatta farm in Machakos County.
A video shared on social media shows some attendees scampering for safety after the snake made its way into one of the tents.
Others are seen throwing stones at the serpent, thereby killing it before one of them picks it up and takes it away from the tent.
Musyoka, who is eyeing the presidency, was hosting Ukambani leaders in an effort to consolidate his support in the region ahead of the August 9th general elections.
The Wiper party leader is one of the four principals of the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) which is seeking to front a joint presidential candidate in the forthcoming elections.
His OKA co-principals are Musalia Mudavadi of Amani National Congress, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula, and Gideon Moi of Kanu.
