A drama was witnessed today in Kisii County during the burial of Mzee Abel Gongera the father to Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi.

This is after Dagoretti North MP Paul Simba Arati and his South Mugirango counterpart Sylvanus Osoro traded blows in the full glare of the public.

Moments later photos of the two lawmakers flooded social media capturing the two leaders exchanging blows.

The fight brought the whole ceremony to a standstill as Kisii governor James Ongwae halted the process in an attempt to create some order.

Reports indicate that it all begun 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.

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.
