- Kalonzo countered Omar with the governorship card telling him, "that is why you will never be the governor of Mombasa, I can give it yo you "
- The committee met for the last public hearing, as both sides were making submissions on the issues set for dialogue by the Committee.
A brief drama was witnessed on Tuesday at the Bomas of Kenya between Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and EALA MP Omar Hassan during the National Dialogue Committee.
An exchange of words between the two leaders started after Kalonzo noted that he had listened to Omar as he was raising issues and not defining them.
"This is a serious engagement. Omar has over time said one constant factor, another constant factor and I wanted to know more," he said.
As Kalonzo was describing his journey as a running mate to Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga both in 2013 and 2017, he was cut short by Omar, who said Kalonzo 'passed through' in 2007. And that was the beginning of the drama.
Kalonzo told off Omar saying he should stop being childish so that the team can make progress.
Omar calmly asked Kalonzo not to be angry, but that fell on deaf ears.
Kalonzo countered Omar with the governorship card telling him, "that is why you will never be the governor of Mombasa, I can give it to you "
Before Kalonzo could breathe, Omar in second countered with "that is why you will never be the president of this country, I can give it to you."
"Msitutishe hapa, you cannot come here and start to intimidate us, governor here, the governor there," Omar said.
Even as the chair of the committee, Cecily Mbarire tried to calm the two leaders down, the exchange of words continued.
"I kindly urge the two of you to stop this, kindly contain yourselves. I now have to beg the two of you to stop what you are doing," she said
Kalonzo continued saying the team cannot attack Raila under his watch
"You cannot attack my leader, I am so ashamed that at one point you (Omar) were the secretary general of my party," Kalonzo said.
The committee met for the last public hearing on Tuesday, as both sides were making submissions on the issues set for dialogue by the Committee.
