Mixed Reactions As Kibaki's Relatives Appeals For Help To Bury Loved One

Kenyan's have their expectations on how popular people in the country should live their lives. There are things that are not accepted to be done by people on high positions according to kenyans.

A tweet by blogger Ibrahim Mutahi concerning an appeal for help by a distant family of the former president Mwai Kibaki has attracted mixed reactions from kenyan's.

The tweet was attached with a gazette announcement of the death of the late president Kibaki wife's sister Lucy kibaki. The family was appealing for help so that they can conduct the funeral.


Many kenyans criticized the move claiming that the family was in a position to conduct the funeral without help from kenyan's. Moreover, they were closely linked to the ex president family and could easily ask for support.However, a few though that the contributions was a way of uniting people and it was not necessarily for money.


Some of the comments are as listed

True,why ask people to contribute when it's obvious they are capable? Why is it that these guys with money like kina Benji Ndolo feel pain to give freely?

@njuki

The problem with this country is corruption. Even that fundraising somebody is seeking to benefit out of it. Surprisingly even the rich are more into funeral fundraising than even the poor. Who bewitched Kenyans
