• Allan Makana claims he is Mwai Kibaki's great grandson.
• Allan Makana had traveled all the way from Western.
There was drama today at Parliament grounds when one Allan Makana, wailed uncontrollably and begged to view the body of former President, Mwai Kibaki which is lying in state at Parliament buildings.
Dressed in a pink hoodie and khaki pants, Mr. Makana who had traveled all the way from Western ended up bare-chested after he was overwhelmed with emotions.
It took the intervention of people who had come to pay their last respects to console him and try to calm him down before he could view Kibaki's body. Makana claims that he is Kibaki's distant grandchild.
"No! give me a chance to cry please.. why are you allowing him to go soon?" Makana is heard asking, amid loud wails. "Why are you allowing him to go soon, why, why, why I'm asking why. He's my president please."
The wails would go on and he is then seen holding on to a cameraman's sleeve in search of answers.
"In fact, he has been my distant grandchild (sic)." (He was most likely confused and meant to say 'great grandfather)..."and I have been believing. Why? Why go soon?"
