Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has asked Gambian lawyer and international criminal law prosecutor Fatou Bensouda to come and save the country before it falls apart.
This was after two Members of Parliament, Dagoretti North and his South Mugirango counterpart Sylvanus Osoro exchanged blows at the burial ceremony of Abel Gongera, the father to Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi.
Kuria said that such fights were sanctioned by President Uhuru Kenyatta during his four-day tour in the Central region.
“Today at a funeral in Kisii there was a physical fight between two of my colleagues Simba Arati and Sylvanus Osoro in front of the Deputy President and Raila Odinga and it’s only 2021. Dear Fatou Bensouda. Book your ticket to Nairobi ASAP. Come save us from the imminent genocide,” he said.
According to reports, after being given a chance to speak, Arati went on to lash out at Deputy President William Ruto and his allies, a move that saw him get booed by a section of the audience.
In his speech, the legislature called for the end of Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities’ dominance in the country’s top leadership.
He wondered why people were talking of balance when only two tribes have ruled the country since it got its independence.
He said that the late and retired President Daniel Moi ruled the country for 24 years while the Kikuyus have ruled for 35 years.
He added that there was no way Deputy President William Ruto who hails from the Kalenjin community can be given 10 years.
His fellow MP Osoro rushed to the podium and attempted to grab the microphone from Arati, an act that triggered the fistfight.
Photos that were immediately shared on social media showed the two MPs going at it in a flurry of fists and kicks.
The fight brought the burial ceremony to a temporary stand-still with Kisii Governor James Ongwawe attempting to restore order.
