Senator Johnson Sakaja and Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, who are both eyeing the Nairobi gubernatorial seat, were involved in a public spat during a rally in Westlands.
The two leaders were embroiled in a battle to address the constituents with Bishop Wanjiru accusing Sakaja of inciting the crowd to frustrate her as she was making her remarks.
Hours after the incident, Sakaja took to Twitter to comment in regards to the incident.
"Tulieni. Inaitwa Character Development," Sakaja said.
Netizens flocked his comment section with some applauding him for staying calm during the ugly spat that was captured on video.
Another section warned him it was a sign ANC had joined the wrong outfit adding that politics is dirty.
In the video that has since gone viral, Wanjiru confronted Sakaja telling him, "I deserve respect, we are both leaders here in Nairobi."
In his response, Sakaja denied inciting the crowd to jeer at Wanjiru, further pleading with the crowd to give everyone an opportunity to talk.
"Everyone has a right to be listened to, please let’s stop this," Sakaja told the crowd.
