Kimani Ichungwa Sends a Strong Message to President Uhuru After an ODM MP Cried Tears in Parliament

The fight against the novel corona pandemic and the state of the Kenyan healthcare has finally found its path into the nerves of the Kenyan political elites who for a long time turned a blind eye to the situation.

On November 18, 2020 the Kikuyu Member of Parliament led a section of Kenyans especially on social media in sending a strong message to President Uhuru Kenyatta after the video of an ODM MP literally shedding tears went viral.

The Seme Member of parliament Doctor James Nyikal who is a medical doctor by profession and a former Director of Medical Services while venting his concern about the state of Kenyan Healthcare cried tears while pleading with the president to have a listening ear concerning the current dire situation.

This emotional state of affairs caught the eyes of the Kikuyu MP who decided to also tell the president to listen to Doctor Nyikal.

“Dr Nyikal is not just a Member of Parliament, he’s a former Director of Medical Services. He’s a patriot who for two terms I’ve served with in parliament. I have grown to respect his passion and commitment on healthcare matters. Please listen to him Mr. President,”

This message by Kimani Ichungwa elicited responses from Kenyans who joined him in sending messages of concern to the president pertaining to the covid19 situation in Kenya. These are some of the messages by Kenyans after Ichungwa’s tweet went viral;

“When you see old men cry, then you realize the matter is dire and the respondent which is Kenyan government has blocked its ears. It won’t end well but the tears are not in vain,” responded Micah Serem.

 “Our President Uhuru Kenyatta cannot listen. It’s time for destruction and the insatiable greed cannot stop unless he tastes defeat,” responded yet another tweep.

Nyikal’s emotional outburst came just a day after he was hosted at Citizen TV over the state of healthcare by the Citizen’s journalist Mwahiga Mwaura where he dissected the whole issue eloquently.
