Two MPs nearly came to blows at Parliament Buildings yesterday after they disagreed about Deputy President William Ruto. Wajir Woman Representative Fatuma Gedi could not tolerate remarks by Tiaty MP William Kamket, who asked why she was backing the DP for President in 2022. Kamket, who is not known to support the DP, is said to have received a thorough tongue-lashing from Gedi, who almost bashed him with a sugar bowl. “Amenizoea sana and today I couldn’t take it anymore,” she was overheard saying.
It seems that our Kenyan parliamentarians are wont to the travails of the average man as the August House has witnessed some pretty disturbing scenes in the past.
The most recent example of our distinguished politicians getting it on was just last year when Babu Owino and Jaguar came to blows. The scene is now immortalized on Youtube with many memes emerging from the incident.
Another shameful incident occurred in 2014, when legislators were debating over the Security Amendments Bill. A fight that involved numerous MPs. To think that our members of parliament care about our security that much? Who would’ve thunk it?
