Didmus Barasa, Simba Arati reconcile 2 weeks after Kibra scuffle

Barely two weeks ago, Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa was captured begging his Dagoretti North counterpart Simba Arati not to unleash goons on him during the Kibra by-election.

“We’re koliks,” Barasa pleaded while extending his hand to Arati.

However, Arati and his ‘Vote Protection Unit’ would hear none of it and the result was a commotion that left Barasa without his trademark cap.

On Tuesday, November 19, the two met at Parliament buildings and had a handshake. Word has it that the two even shared a meal at MPs lounge.

The photos show the two legislators chatting heartily.

In a viral video that became one of the highlights of the Kibra by-election, Arati is seen subtly commanding goons to attack Barasa on the grounds the grounds of voter bribery.

The incident had a section of Kenyans calling for the arrest of Arati and other Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leaders over the pockets of violence that rocked the November 7 by-election.

Certainly, politics makes strange bedfellows!
