Kenyans have been left in shock after two of their Members of Parliament fought in church on Sunday.

The incident took place at a Sunday service at a Catholic Church in the town of Kiharu, in central Murang’a county.

Both MPs had addressed the congregation but chaos broke out after an argument ensued between the two lawmakers.

Local media reported that the fight started when Kiharu constituency MP Ndindi Nyoro refused to hand back the microphone to another politician Maina Kamanda.

Kamanda, a politician from the capital, Nairobi, was overseeing the political segment of the church service.

“I can’t allow people from Nairobi to come and take over my constituency as if they know this area. I am an elected leader,” Mr Nyoro, is quoted as saying.

The fighting continued outside the church building despite an earlier effort to separate the two politicians and their supporters.

The Catholic Church in central Kenya, has now banned politicians from speaking during its service.

There have been reactions from Kenyans on social media using the hashtag #ShameOnTheChurches.

According to local media the two MPs were both from the same political party, Jubilee party, but from opposing factions.

Both politicians were in church to reach out to supporters from their constituencies.

The ruling Jubilee party is currently divided over the issue of who will run in the 2022 elections.
