Kenyan MPs Whistle To Distrupt President Kenyatta’s Address

imageLoud whistling interrupted the Kenyan president as he tried to make his annual state of the nation address to parliament, which is broadcast live.
Opposition MPs began blowing on whistles a few seconds into President Uhuru Kenyatta’s speech. They had earlier vowed to disrupt proceedings to protest at the government’s failure to address “deep-rooted corruption” in Kenya.

Seven MPs were removed and the address was delayed by half an hour.
The speaker of the house, Justin Muturi, described the commotion as a “gross disorder” and ordered that the troublemakers be forcefully ejected as they were ignoring his commands to stop whistling.
