It was a moment of drama and laughter at Citizen TV’s Day Break Show when former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale bitterly exchanged with former Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi.
The two leaders were discussing a section of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) when crossed their ways, which resulted in a bitter exchange.
Discussions on the BBI solving the winner takes it all was the main cause of their bitter exchange of words, which saw Elachi branding Khalwale as a failure, who could again fail come 2022.
Khalwale on the other hand said the way Elachi was interpreting the BBI section set to solve the winner takes it all issues, indicates why she failed to run a small office of being a speaker.
According to Boni Khalwale, the winner takes all can only be solved when the runner up candidate in the presidential race becomes the Prime Minister.
Boni Khalwale noted that the winning president going ahead to appoint the PM won’t solve the issue.
“If the person that is runner up is not appointed Prime Minister, how then does it solve the winner takes all? I have listened to Beatrice Elachi and I now understand why she could not run a simple office as that of a speaker,” Boni Khalwale sent a jibe at Elachi.
Elachi responded by hitting out at the former lawmaker for failing in Kakamaga’s recent elective positions. She also said that Khalwale is likely going to fail again come 2022.
According to Elachi, Boni Khalwale used to be a bright doctor until recently when he started acting otherwise.
