Kaluma hits out at Ruto's handlers after failing to join President in Homa Bay"/>
Peter Kaluma; a member of parliament for Homa Bay Town, has been under fire for four days as a result of a Tweet he wrote in an effort to criticize professionals who wear dreadlocks.
On Sunday, MP Kaluma posted on Twitter, asking in response to a question that someone asked him, "Imagine your doctor, lawyer, or engineer in dreadlocks," which triggered a contentious discussion online, especially among those who had dreadlocks.
The lawmaker's remarks were a result of his earlier response to Kenya Methodist University's (KeMU) recent prohibition on male students wearing earrings, plaits or dreadlocks in their new rules.
The MP was subsequently criticized for his careless statements by enraged Tweeps who swarmed to his comment area.
Many IT experts, lawyers, software engineers, and other professionals commented on the relevant topic and shared their own photographs in an effort to refute MP Kaluma.Here are some of the shared responses to his tweet:-
