WATCH: Kenya MPs exchange kicks and blows in parliament; video goes viral

Kenya’s parliament session has devolved into anarchy, with rival lawmakers fighting fists.

On Wednesday afternoon, MPs in Kenya’s Parliament got into a fist brawl during a debate on the contentious Political Parties (Amendment) Bill, 2021.

The parliamentarians were debating Kandara MP Alice Wahome’s proposal to Article Six.

Clause Six, which is at the heart of the bill, aims to establish procedures for registering a coalition political party, among other things.

The bill is considered part of an effort to turn Raila Odinga’s 2022 machine, led by Azimio La Umoja, into a coalition party.

The legislators resorted to physical conflict in order to obstruct the voting process.

Others were spotted tossing water bottles in protest of the current situation.

The activity of the house was halted for over five minutes before the order was restored.

After a fight broke out in parliament on Tuesday evening, the live television feed was interrupted and journalists were ordered out of the press gallery.
