Speaking in an interview, Edwin Sifuna claimed the squabble was not as harmful as people interpreted it.

Sifuna claims that he was stopping Robert Alai, from climbing on top of his car citing it was not secure and it would have not accommodated him.

It was just a safety issue, that was my vehicle, and as you know cars have a carrying capacity….he is not a light guy,” Sifuna said.

I was trying to tell him to get off because we were just too many people on the vehicle but he did not want to listen, so I had to ease him off,” he said.

Sifuna noted that his car was damaged during the scuffle that happened during the campaign trail

If I show you my windshield now, it is shattered, I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Pajero that I use for the campaigns, and I took it to the shop to have a roof rack installed. So if you are going to come on my car, please come to the top,” added Sifuna.
