A video of former deputy speaker Farah Maalim exchanging blows with a Somali ex-minister at a Nairobi hotel has been leaked online.
The one-minute CCTV footage dated Thursday, September 29, shows the visibly annoyed former legislator turning to the unidentified ex-minister with the first blow as the recipient tries to shield his face with both hands.
The Somali ex-minister signals at an official who comes in between the two attempting to stop the fight.
Mr Maalim, however, goes after the former minister pushing him metres away with spontaneous blows and kicks.
More people come in and try to get in between the two suited up men and moments later the ex-minister is escorted out of the hotel.
Mr Maalim follows closely after him and even bends down to pick up something that fell on the floor during the fight then goes on to walk out.
It is unclear what prompted the brawl but the two officials were seemingly infuriated.
