Drama ensued in Machakos county as top politicians clashed during a church function.
The two, Transport Cheif Administrative Secretary (CAS) Wavinya Ndeti and Mavoko Member of Parliament Patrick Mavoko degenerated into a fierce exchange of words.
Trouble started when Water Principal Secretary (PS) Joseph Irungu, who had been invited by Wavinya to the function, outlined various water projects by the National Government, which he directly attributed to Wavinya’s intervention.
However, Irungu’s sentiments didn’t go down well with Makau, who swiftly rose up to protest at what he termed as a scheme by both Wavinya and Irungu to engage in dishonest, illegal and misleading politics.
A furious Makau fiercely confronted the PS, reminding him he was a civil servant, who should not engage in politicking.
“My friend, Irungu remember we serve in the same Government and what you are now doing is wrong. You must stop that nonsense and sit down. You should remember I have the capacity to table an impeachment motion against you in the National Assembly for engaging in this sort of misconduct,” Makau said.
The incident triggered tension and excitement in equal measure, forcing Kalonzo to intervene and cool down the temperatures.
