A vicious road rage on Friday left gospel musician Ringone Apoko nursing serious cheek injuries after blogger Robert Alai allegedly clobbered him with a rungu.
In a video clip widely circulated online, Alai and Ringtone were involved in bitter exchange with the two blaming one another for a slight road accident in Nairobi’s Kilimani.
Although it is not clear what transpired, one could tell from the video clip that the two cars might have knocked each other.
The gospel musician was in his Range rover Sports car while blogger Robert was in his Subaru car.
As a result, Mr. Alai left his car to counter Ringtone Apoko who was daring him to get out of his Subaru car.
In the meantime, the drama attracted netizens who surrounded the scene in a bid to get a glimpse of what was happening between Alai and Ringtone
Some witnesses on the ground alleged that Robert Alai rammed into Apoko’s Range Rover, deconstructing the right-side mirror.

At the same time, others claimed that it was Ringtone who rammed into Alai’s car before he came out and beat him mercilessly for driving carelessly.
“Kwa nini ananipiga? Kwa nini ananipiga? Asked Ringtone who was wondering why blogger Alai decided to rain blows on him.
Apoko further complained that the blogger ought not to have taken the law into his hands after he used his rungu to mercilessly clobber him.
In his flamboyant nature, Ringtone Apoko stole the stage to distribute new 100 Kenya shillings notes to the boda boda youths and other road users who were within the vicinity.
On the other hand, the rowdy boda boda youths blocked Robert Alai from moving by placing stones right in front of his car tyres.
Alai is currently being held at Kilimani police station following the bizarre incident.
