Members of Parliament Charles Njagua and Babu Owino were involved in a nasty altercation at Parliament’s media centre on Tuesday, October 10, forcing sergeants-at-arms to intervene.
The genesis of Starehe and Embakasi East MPs exchange of blows is still unclear but journalists at the centre said the singer whose government name is Charles Njagua Kanyi, followed Paul Ogili (Babu) after he walked in.
Zipo.co.ke has learnt that a few minutes to 3pm, Babu walked to the Media Centre, the section that houses the head of media relations and greeted the journalists.
According to reporters, Babu had been chatting with them when his counterpart grabbed him from the back and started pulling him while yelling.
And that is how a confrontation ensued between the hitmaker and the former UoN student union leader.
“We heard Jaguar shout: “You cannot do that to the President. He is not a caretaker President”,” a journalist was quoted by the Star.
The legislators, both first timers, were held in the chambers and Speaker Justin Muturi has said he has initiated disciplinary actions against them.
Babu was in the news recently after he angered Jubilee supporters by allegedly referring to President Uhuru Kenyatta as “mtoto wa mbwa”.
He was charged with subversion, insulting Uhuru and incitement to violence but denies the charge saying he did not mention anyone by name.
He spent two nights in police cells and was eventually freed on Sh200,000 bail. He insists he won’t apologise.
