Embakasi East Member of Parliament of Parliament Babu Owino lit the social media with his cheeky remarks on the events that unfolded in Kisii County during the burial of Deputy governor Joash Maangi’s father yesterday.
In his post on his official social media account, Babu cheekily rekindled the events while thanking Dagoretti North legislator Simba Arati for being peaceful during the event.
“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Hon. Simba Arati for being peaceful yesterday. Simba did not beat Osoro, it is osoro’s cheeks that moved towards Simba’s hand.” Wrote Babu Owino on Facebook.
This is after the Dagoretti MP Simba Arati and his South Mugirango counterpart Sylvanus Osoro traded blows yesterday in the full glare of the public over Arati’s remarks on Deputy President William Ruto.
It all began with the Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati attacking the DP Ruto led hustler nation while on the podium. He then good booed by a section of the audience.
Arati was asking the DP to tender his apologies to the Kisii community over the loss they encountered in 2008 post-election violence, a thing that did not go down well with Osoro.
This prompted Mr. Osoro who is one of the DP’s brigades from the region, who then rushed to the podium to grab the microphone from Arati prompting the fight.
Among those who witnessed the drama were ODM leader Raila Odinga and deputy president William Ruto who attended the burial.
The two were thereafter separated and escorted from the podium by security officers.
