Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and Woman Representative Rachael Shebesh engaged in a public scuffle over a Sh8.5 million Range Rover.
The two have been Â summoned, including their Â bodyguards for grilling today following the confrontation.
Shebeshâ€™s bodyguard shot in the air twiceÂ during the rucus to disperse Sonko’s supporters.
Kilimani head of CID George Ojuka who visited Caribea Club where the drama happened on Saturday night said no injury was reported but many patrons got scared in the melee.
He said they are looking for Shebeshâ€™ bodyguard who is not a police officer but licensed to carry a gun to disarm him and charge him in court.
â€œHe has gone underground but we are looking for him. He should surrender the weapon before we take further action on him including charging him before a court of law for causing disturbance and misusing the weapon,â€ said Ojuka.
Ojuka said witness accounts show Sonko had arrived at the club at about 7 pm in a group of about 30 people and found Shebesh also there with her supporters.
Each group sat separate places but Shebesh apparently started to taunt Sonkoâ€™s group shouting at him and his supporters.
After the incident, Sonko posted on his Facebook page:
Watu wangu my life is in danger. I’m just from a funeral of my late family’s driver who’s been laid to rest at his family home a few hours ago.After delivering my speech I told the people who escorted me to the funeral to meet me at my usual joint azalea wood avenue for thanks giving dinner but I’m shocked to find a politician well known to me with his/her 30people who keep on shouting & threatening me but all the same I’m playing it cool.
An aide to Sonko who declined to be named however blamed Shebesh for the scuffle, claiming she attempted to assault Senator Sonko in her ‘Kidero style’. According to the aide, the scuffle involved a vehicle which apparently the two jointly bought when they were alleged to be ‘boning’ each other. After Photos of the escapade leaked online, the two separated ways acrimoniously.
She was with her lover Mark Ndung’u who is a TNA nominated Nairobi County Assembly member. Â They started shouting at Sonko who was meeting his lawyer over the impending Ruai demolitions.Â Shebesh sent some goons to confront Sonko and demand an explanation why he impounded a vehicle he had bought for her.Â The vehicle was impounded after shebesh failed to clear 4 million arrears. Sonko bought the car for her and paid 4 million kshs. Shebesh bodyguard has no licence for firearm.
