Did Bacho Akhalaia beat Zaza Gorozia?

Akhali Taoba writes that information has been released that Minister of Defence Bacho Akhalaia beat the governor of Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti Zaza Gorozia. The reason for this is the expected reshuffle in government according to which Bacho Akhalaia may replace Gorozia and Gorozia on his side may replace the minister of agriculture. According to reports a few days ago an incident took place between Gorozia and Akhalaia after which Gorozia did not appear at his job. Supposedly Gorozia does not want to leave his post and this became a reason for arguing and a fight broke out.

Gorozia told journalists that he is in France now on a business trip and he will be back in 1-2 days. He rejected the reports and says that he does not know anything about a possible staff reshuffle in the ruling administration.
