Kenyans Gangs Up Against Governor Sakaja After Making The Following Announcement

Kenyans continue to criticize Governor Sakaja for his statement on Monday, November 21, allowing loud music in Matatus to be "part of our culture".

In his meeting with the matatu operators, the governor declared, "The issue of graffiti and music in matatus is bad, this is naive and backward thinking, it is part of our culture, if one does not want to ride matatu with music, he/she should."

Sakaja's sentiments while lauded by the matato operators, appear to have rubbed a section of Kenyans the wrong way, who have argued that it was a populist move from the chief.

Netizens objected to the governor's statement, calling it unfortunate.

"Nairobi Governor Sakaja Johnson's statements supporting loud music in Matatus are an unfortunate act of populism. There are laws in this country that control noise pollution. It's a shame that the governor encourages criminal acts and impunity," lamented Ephraim Njenja.
