According to a video footage circulated on social media, Shebesh  was seen outside the Governor’s office jostling for position. A short but heated argument ensues after Kidero emerged from his office, before he is seen gesticulating and slapping Shebesh, who momentarily staggers before men believed to be her aides steady her. Kidero then retreats to his office as security personnel intervene.

“Kidero, you have slapped me? You have slapped me Kidero? You have slapped me?” Shebesh is heard crying out. The Governor’s action as captured in the video footage — that attracted lots of reactions on social media — was swift. One of her aides was also heard asking Kidero why he slapped the legislator. After the slap, the crowd is seen scampering away. Minutes later, Kidero convened a press conference where he claimed he could not remember slapping anybody.
