Nikicheza kama mimi ni shida! – Ledama

Two nominated women senators came to blows on Wednesday morning during health committee elections.

Ms Mary Senata and her counterpart Beatrice Kwamboka disagreed after Narok Senator Ledama Olekina was elected as vice chairperson of the committee.

Senator Olekina was running against Ms Seneta for the post with Ms Kwamboka in support of his bid.

Drama ensued after claims that Deputy Majority Whip Farhiya Ali had forged Senator Millicent Omanga’s signature to increase Ms Seneta’s chances of winning.
