But the fracas between the two elected Nairobi county leaders is not nearly the only high-profile case witnessed in recent times. Ms Nancy Baraza was forced to resign as Deputy Chief Justice after a confrontation with a female guard at a high-end shopping mall in Nairobi on New Year’s Eve of 2012.
Baraza, now a law lecturer at the University of Nairobi, was accused of pinching the nose of Rebecca Kerubo after a brief confrontation that earned the then deputy CJ the title of the ‘nose-pincher’.
Last month, Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri was involved in a confrontation with a female police officer. He is accused of assaulting the female officer when she sought to inspect the vehicle he was travelling in, in Nakuru. The matter is before court.
