There was drama live on national television when Uasin Gishu women representative countered Nyamira senator’s arguments.
The two legislatures were invited guests on a program aired on NTV.
The altercation was instigated by a comment made by senator Okong’o Omogeni.
In relation to a faction of leaders allied to the deputy president, William Ruto, Omogeni claimed that:
“Last time I said I’ve seen Ruto spotting a goatee, Gladys Boss denied, yet it is now clear. The problem with Tanga Tanga is that they deny even the obvious, even now when they can see the BBI is the most popular thing now, they are still claiming its unnecessary.”
Gladys Boss Shollei wasn’t impressed by the senator’s remark and in response she said that, unlike the senator, she doesn’t look at the deputy president’s face when talking to him.
She went ahead to accuse the male senator of admiring DP Ruto’s face.
“I didn’t see the goatee, I listen to what the DP says, not looking at his face. If Okong’o stares at the DP like a woman, that’s his problem,” she said.
The moderator was forced to intervene in what was fast turning into a personal confrontation of words.
