    Because these tools most likely depend on python.
    I suggest you reinstall the python package.

    If you want to test another version of it, deploy it in a another directory.
    Either in your home, if you are the only user,
    or in /usr/local/{bin,man,<etc>} if you want to have it system wide.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
