Social Media influencer and longtime blogger Robert Alai engaged in physical fist with Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) secretary general and Nairobi senatorial aspirant Edwin Sifuna during Azimio – One Kenya campaign caravan in Kawangware.
The scuffle ensued after Edwin Sifuna allegedly denied Alai a chance to address supporters in Kawangware forcing the disgruntled Kileleshwa MCA aspirant to push Sifuna on top of the car that two had holed.
Taking to social media sites, Alai has dismissed his critics over the brawl that ensued during Azimio rally in Kawangware, stating that they (critics) will castigate him in daytime and sleep at night.
“Wanasema nini juu yangu? wacha waseme, usiku wamelala (what are they saying about me? let them speak but when night falls, they will be asleep)” stated.
Azimio – One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga was forced to intervene and re-store calmness as he shouted at Alai to stop mishandling Sifuna.
“Alai, Alai, Wachana na hiyo Maneno please” Raila pleaded the ODM candidate for Kileleshwa MCA seat.
However, Alai was later handed the microphone to address the gathering as he rallied the electorates to endorse his Kileleshwa bid and vote for him in August 9 contest.
The Azimio campaign brigade later proceeded to Embakasi West Constituency where Raila drummed support for Azimio – One Kenya allied candidates for various positions within Nairobi.
Among other candidates who flanked Raila on Azimio campaign trail includes; Jubilee party technocrat candidate Polycap Igathe for Nairobi gubernatorial seat, ODM candidate for Women rep seat Esther Passaris and a host of legislators allied to the coalition.
This emerges after the security institutions and agencies had warned politicians who are eyeing for elective seat to uphold the utmost peaceful campaigns ahead of August election.
Politicians have been warned from instigating and triggering violence especially with only 22 days remaining to the general election.
