Male MPs in fight within Parliament chambers

Male MPs exchange blows during session

Marakwet East MP Kangogo Bowen and Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma in fight within Parliament chambers

Homa Bay Town member of parliament Peter Kaluma was on Wednesday engaged in a fight during the morning session at the National Assembly.

The MP disagreed with his Marakwet East counterpart Kangogo Bowen and caused a scuffle on the floor of the House. They had to be separated through the intervention of Majority Leader Aden Duale and the sergeants at arms.

The two were seen engaging in a bitter quarrel which involved pushing and shoving before they were finally separated by their colleagues.

The two legislators seemed to have disagreed over the incident where Kwale Woman Representative Zulekha Hassan entered the chambers carrying her infant.

Mwea MP Kabinga Wachira and Migori Senator Ochillo Ayacko were also involved in the fight but later walked away.

MPs thrown out of Parliament

The Speaker did not take notice of the fight as he was attempting to bring order to the House after unrest caused by the stunt with the Kwale woman rep.

Alego Usonga MP Samuel Atandi, who tried to defend MP Zulekha, was also asked to leave the chambers for being disorderly.
