On 27th April, a middle aged man was noted outside the parliament building yelling uncontrollably. Allan Makana claimed to be Kibaki grandchild and wanted to see body.
For three days, Kenyans were given opportunity to view the Kibaki body displayed in parliament. On Tuesday, while people were storming in their numbers to view the body, a middle aged man was seen outside parliament buildings yelling uncontrollably, claiming to be Kibaki grandson.
The man pulled off his yellow shirt remaining bare-chest. The security team prevented him from getting into the building in such a state, even after Makana asked them to check his bald head as proof that he resembles Kibaki.
On 29th, Allan reappeared again during the Kibaki state funeral at Nyayo stadium. His presence was noticed when he proceeded to the clergyman on stage, pleading for a chance to address the nation.
Immediately the security guards whisked him away to prevent further disruptions. Even so, the presiding archbishop Antony Muheria asked the security guards to treat Makana fairly. “He’s also a Kenyan who’s mourning his president and therefore treat him fairly” Said archbishop Antony.
Allan Makana ails from Marakari area, Kanduyi Constituency Bungoma county. He’s a Luhya by tribe.
His mother’s name is Concepta Makana. The name of the father is yet to be disclosed. The father died in 2010, when Allan was in class seven. They were born 8 children in that family.
