Chaos as Kenya MPs exchange kicks and blows in parliament…

Kenya MPs have gone the Ghanaian way as they exchanged blows during lawmaking sessions.

From what we have gathered, the fight broke out during a debate on the political parties bill amendment.

The lawmakers were voting on an amendment to clause Six by Kandara MP Alice Wahome.

Clause Six which is at the Center of the Bill seeks to among others provide for procedure followed for the registration of a coalition political party.

The Bill is seen as part of the strategy to turn Azimio La Umoja, Opposition Chief Raila Odinga’s 2022 machine into a coalition party.

The lawmakers resorted to physical confrontation disrupting the voting.

Others could be seen throwing water bottles in disapproval of the ongoing process.

House business was paralyzed for almost five minutes before order was restored.
