On Wednesday, Kakamega Women Representative Elsie Muhanda found herself on the receiving end after thousands of Kenyans took to her social media accounts to troll her for naming a house she constructed for a poor resident after herself.
Breaking the news on her official Facebook account, the former secondary school teacher boasted of how she feels inspired by transforming lives of vulnerable people in her county.
“This inspires me, transforming lives of my people,” Muhanda wrote accompanied by pictures of the old house and new one under her name.
Kenyans were however gutted by the politician’s move to name the resident’s house after herself, arguing that since the house had been constructed both for a poor person and using public fund, it shouldn’t have been assigned any name.
Everlyn Ongogo; “So why do you write your name on someone’s house after building for them? So they feel forever enslaved by tou? LAAABIISH!”
“Sasa ungemjengea ya permanent ungeweka hadi picha yako? Shenzi type,” Said Faith Nyar Ogaya, sparking laughter.
“Good work but sometimes help without a camera.Sasa morio akitaka kuoa ataleta aje mamaaa kwa keja iko na lebo Kama Hii,” Said Danny Romeo.
“We should not be people who show off after helping someone, let God reward you , writing your name worsens the house ,is it now your office?? You have not helped him ,that’s intimidation,” commented Brian Luseno.
Samson Thiong’o; “Great work messed by an ego of a self seeking leader. Pull down your name and come back for my congratulations. For now you’ve done nothing for the people but to yourself only.”
