The Senate Public Accounts Committee sitting was violently disrupted on the morning of Wednesday, June 15, when Nairobi county leaders Mike Sonko and Evans Kidero engaged in a physical fight.
Senator Sonko is said to have violently engaged in a physical fight with Governor Kidero.
The fight started as a verbal exchanged between the two and got worse when Sonko accused Kidero of murder.
The two leaders rose against each other, going physical and exchanging blows forcing the committee to adjourn immediately.

Journalists were thrown out of the building when the two leaders engaged each other.
Sonko was later escorted out of the building.
Sonko sits in the committee as a member and it is believed Kidero had been summoned to answer to the alleged misuse of public funds.
It can be remembered that Sonko and Kidero have had verbal exchanges before. Sonko is also eyeing the Nairobi gubernatorial seat currently held by Kidero.
Sonko has accused Kidero of corruption before while Kidero has returned a tantrum by labeling the senator a drug peddler.
It can also be remembered that Kidero had a physical altercation with Nairobi county Women Representative Racheal Shebesh where he slapped her hard.

Shebesh had stormed Kidero’s office accompanied by disgruntled workers demanding answers from the governor.
It was alleged that Shebesh hit Kidero below the belt, prompting the governor to unleash a powerful slap that sent the legislator going wild.
