Violence broke out at the burial of Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi's father, Abel Gongera.

Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga were in attendance at the funeral which turned chaotic when Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati addressed the assemblage.

Arati rattled DP Ruto's supporters after stating that two communities have been president since Kenya gained independence. 


MPs Simba Arati and Osoro clashed at the burial of the father of Kisii DG Maangi attended by DP Ruto and former PM Odinga.

Arati further told the DP that the company he keeps does not represent the face of Kisii leaders.

"When you were in ODM our people in Kisii were killed in Rift Valley, ask for forgiveness here for our people who died in Rift Valley," Arati said.

Following this statement, South Mugirango MP Silvanus Osoro stormed the podium and grabbed the mic from Arati and the two came to blows.

Police and officials who were close by jumped into action to separate the two leaders as the crowd chorused pro-Ruto chants.'
