Dagoretti North Member of Parliament Simba Arati has resolved his differences with his South Mugirango colleague Silvanus Osoro after a physical exchange at a funeral earlier this month in the same county over BBI.
While attending the burial of Bonchari MP Oroo Oyioka in Kisii County on Friday, Arati and Osoro shook hands and said they had buried the hatchet.
On February 1, Arati and Osoro engaged in a fight during the burial service of Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi’s father.
Arati said the South Mugirango MP was his younger brother in terms of age and in Parliament. Simba Arati
“Apart from the small disagreements witnessed during the last burial, you have seen today that Osoro is my younger brother in terms of age as well as in the National Assembly,” Arati said.
Then, Arati had accused Deputy President William Ruto of hanging out with people of questionable character.
“We have several leaders here in the company of our Deputy President who have a tainted life. These are fraudsters who should not be allowed to take up any leadership position,” said Arati.
This prompted Osoro, a follower of the Tanga tanga movement, to force his way onto the podium grabbing the microphone from Arati.
The scuffle continued for close to twenty minutes. Later, the duo was forced out of the burial.
Kisii leaders condemned the act especially as the two disregarded the bereaved family.
