Having a short temper doesn't do you, your body, or those around you any favors.
In fact, those who are prone to unpredictable and out-of-control fits of anger, only cause themselves problems and that's the case of one daring journalist who almost engaged himself into a physical fight with a prominent cabinet minister.

Muhia Gitao, is the name of the journalist who did the unthinkable by throwing an empty bottle of beer into the face of Kenya’s first Finance Minister James Gichuru.

Gitao was a well established journalist with The East African Standard then.
On the fateful day, Gitao and honourable Gichuru were at the Pan Africa Hotel in Nairobi drinking alcohol.
While Gitao was busy sipping his beer honourable Gichuru insulted him and that stirred anger in him (Gitao).
Since he was tipsy and short tempered, Gitao could not control his patience. He lifted an empty bottle of beer and threw it straight to Gichuru's face leaving everyone who was present at the scene gasping in disbelief.
On seeing that, Gichuru's body guards intervened and tried to beat Gitao, but Gichuru himself restrained them by telling them to avoid causing a drama.
Following the incident, Gitao was paid three months’ salary and was dismissed by his employer but his problems did not end there.
Those who were in power then made sure that he was not employed anywhere else.
