Dr. Boni Khalwale, a senator from Kakamega, drew conflicting responses from Kenyans online on October 10 after criticizing Jair Bolsonario of Brazil, former US President Donald Trump, and Kenya's former prime minister Raila Odinga.
Speaking through his official Twitter account, Khalwale, a supporter of Ruto's UDA, expressed his sadness over the attacks on democracy that have taken place in Brazil, the United States, and Kenya.
Khalwale believes that the world should strongly condemn the post-election violence that took place in Bomas, Kenya, during the general election in august.
He also denounced the events in the US Congress and Jair Bolsonario's decision to oppose the election of Lula, the new president of Brazil, who was sworn in last week.
However, his statement drew conflicting responses from Kenyans online, who appear to be against his position on ODM principal.
" The emergence of a trend of assault on democracy & on the peaceful transfer of power, as witnessed at the US Congress, at Bomas in Kenya & at congress in Brazil is sad & regrettable. The world must put a firm stamp of condemnation on Donald Trump, Raila Odinga & Jair Bolsonaro" Khalwale Tweeted.
