Known to be one of the most anticipated and watched night debate shows on Kenyan TV, the Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) that runs on Citizen TV every Wednesday night yesterday almost turned chaotic as temperatures between the guests rose.

Koinange the host had on the panel two very outspoken women leaders from both sides of the divide and each tried to out garb and outwit the other both with facts, sentiments, and heckling.

Suba North (Mbita) MP Millie Odhiambo Mabona and Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika each aimed at each other’s jugular thus turning the debate, in the words of renowned journalist David Makali’s words- cacophonous.

Almost right after the pleasantries, the debate between the duo, with Millie representing ODM, handshake, and being a proponent of BBI while Kihika, a gargantuan DP William Ruto’s ally, descended in chaos. Each tried to shout down the other, disrespectful jabs were bandied around with wanton abandon leaving the host to stare in disbelief.


“The difference between the people in the Mt. Kenya region vs the Nyanza people, as she said, is that we are not cows; we don’t just follow blindly” – Susan Kihika

“Are you suggesting we are cows?… I would rather you say we are fish but not cows” – Millie Odhiambo #JKLive

Millie Mabona at some point realized that Kihika was so agitated that she began mocking her

“Why have are you turning red. Relax, take some water, we have barely started,”

Forty-five minutes later, the session went to a break and when they resumed, Mr. Koinange read a text sent directly to his phone by the Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu who asked the ladies to kindy not fall into the stereotyping of ‘catfights’ synonymous with females and to take turns so that the country watching can get what each is trying to put across.

That text inadvertently quenched the embers. The show continued with relative comport between the two politicians. Kenyans had quite a bit to say though as expressed in the tweets below

Jeff Koinange is a biased moderator. He has refused to control this debate deliberately. His intention is to drown Susan Kihika's voice by allowing Millie Odhiambo to heckle & create chaos. Is this part of the pro-BBI strategies that SK Macharia & the former PM discussed?  #JKlive

Reason I am watching  #JKLive  tonight is because of Hon. Millie Mabona. Normally I don’t waste time on that other lady.

Susan Kihika: When you insulted the president, we didn't say the luo insulted Kikuyu…
Millie Odhiambo: True
Susan Kihika: Then why would you say by Uhuru being president the Kikuyu have been president?
Woman down…. 🔥🔥🔥😪😪😪  #JKLive
Millie Odhiambo is beaten
