Video: Iraqi tribal chief satirical poem embarrasses Ammar Al-Hakim

Ammar Al-Hakim

An Iraqi tribal chief has slammed the political powers' performance in his country, prompting National Wisdom Movement leader Ammar al-Hakim to leave a gathering in southern Iraq, a video obtained by the Baghdad Post revealed Wednesday. 


The video that went viral on social media shows the tribal chief accusing in a satirical poem politicians as corrupt and oppressive.



He said all politicians since the overthrow of former President Saddam Hussein "only siphoned off Iraqi wealth", presenting false promises for Iraqis. 


Al-Hakim left the gathering claiming what has been mentioned in the poem was baseless.
