An assistant chief was on Thursday ejected from a public meeting by residents for being drunk and disorderly.

John Matheka of Ngelani Sub location was dragged out of the meeting held outside his offices at Ngelani in Mavoko, Machakos County.

The meeting had been convened by Muthwani MCA George Kingori.

The drunk administrator stormed into the meeting soon after the MCA started to respond to residents’ complaints.

“No! no! no! no! that is politics, we do not want politics here,” he shouted soon after he entered the hall.

Angry residents swiftly held him and frog-marched him out of the meeting as he kept shouting.

He was moved far from the meeting and taken into his bedroom just behind his office.

The meeting later went on uninterrupted.

The residents condemned the chief’s conduct and demanded his immediate sacking.

They said he was a nuisance and embarrassment to the community.

“How does the government expect such a drunkard to serve us, we have tolerated for long hence demand his immediate sacking,” a resident Regina Mutetu said.

Mutetu said the chief was a disgrace and bad example to the residents especially the youth.

She said some of the youth had resorted to drug abuse since the chief was deeply into it.

MCA Kingori did not comment on the incident.

He urged the residents to concentrate on development and ignore distracters and politics of hatred.
