Nandi County Deputy Governor Dr Yulita Cheruiyot on Friday clashed with Senator Kiprotich Cherargei over protocol.
The Nandi Senator had invited Nandi Governor Stephen Sang to speak after him but instead the Deputy Governor came in.
Dr Cheruiyot accused the Senator of attempts to bar her from speaking saying it was not the first time he has bypassed her on protocol issues.
“This is not the first time and the Senator should know that we have a Deputy Governor in Nandi,”said Dr Cheruiyot.
However the Senator who had taken his seat shouted back saying the Deputy Governor was wrong on protocol.
He said according to the National order of protocol, he ranks next to the Governor and that he was in order for him to invite the Governor.
The events were witnessed during the burial of Sammy Rono, a brother to Former Nandi Governor Dr Cleophas Lagat in Mosop Constituency.
