Starehe MP Charles Kanyi, popularly known as Jaguar, on Sunday, September 22, publicly asked Deputy President William Ruto to allow him to beat up his Embakasi East counterpart, Babu Owino.
Speaking to residents in Kayole, the former musician explained that he needed to teach Owino a lesson for insulting the DP.
He further argued that it was not proper for younger leaders to disrespect their seniors and that all he needed was to fight Owino again for the lesson to properly sink in.
Ruto, together with nominated Senator Millicent Omanga, were present at the gathering as Jaguar gave the address.
"I am the elected MP from Starehe and I want to tell you that we love you and we shall serve you to ensure that you represent Nairobi youth. We also do not want politics full of insults.
"Your excellency there is a young boy called Babu Owino who insulted you recently. I am asking your permission to let me beat up that boy again and embarrass him, your excellency," begged Jaguar.
"We shall not allow our leaders to be insulted. Please tell Babu to hide when he sees us because we shall not allow our leaders to be insulted," continued Jaguar.
In October 2017, the two lawmakers made headlines after they were involved in a scuffle at the Parliament Buildings.
They traded blows on Tuesday just after the afternoon session started and had to be separated by parliament staff.
It was alleged that Owino walked into the media center where journalists were following the parliamentary discussion on the amendment of electoral laws and moments later Jaguar walked in looking for him.
"We will teach you a lesson Babu, you must respect the President," stated the Starehe MP at the time.
An angry Owino responded asking, "Which president? The only president I know is Raila Odinga."
They were whisked away by the parliamentary orderlies and had to be separated on their way out.
