Dogoretti North member of parliament Simba Arati engaged in a physical fight with his counterpart of Dagoretti south Sylvanus Osoro. TENSION started when Simba Arati's speech at Kisii deputy governor's father's burial, started to directly attack Ruto's supporters. Arati wondered why people would elect William Ruto as the president after Moi served Kenya for 24 Years. Arati triggered the war after he said that Ruto has to apologize for the Kisii people who died in 2007 post-elections violence. According to Arati William Ruto should not vie for the presidency. Arati was on the podium at Abel Gongera's burial who is the father to Deputy governor of Kisii Joash maangi.

Osoro went straight toward the podium where Ararti was speaking from and that's where they engaged in a fight. The chaos made the funeral service a standstill for a few minutes. ODM leader Raila Odinga and William Ruto were seated at the front seats listening as Arati was speaking.
“Mheshimiwa Ruto, the Deputy President, huwezi tembea hapa Kisii…sisi kama wakisii hatuwezi kuwa kwamba watu ambao unatembea na wao…it’s not our face…unatembea na wezi, wash wash…hawa watu ndio unataka unatembea na wao around. Unataka tufanye nini?” Simba Arati said
