Reactions on twitter:
Duncan:Why not change the law itself. Make it a just one... Laws, all laws have to be adhered to. Just or otherwise. Change the law. To avoid the ambiquity of which laws are just or unjust...
Jeff:It will not pass the test of the day as Freedom of expression is enshrined in Article 33 of Kenya's 2010 constitution. The poor versus rich narrative is a just discussion on growing wealth inequality.
Mwiti:And who creates those unjust laws if not your representatives?whom we trust to rule us? Good thing there is time frame for correction ( 5 yrs).
Paul:I think that we are taking some issues to far. Will I as priest be accused of discrimination when I say that the rich in Kenya will continue being rich while the poor will continue being unless, they themselves (the poor) arise and condemn the socio-political system?.
Paul:I think in my view such a thing should never be allowed to see the light of the day @NCIC_Kenya It is not a discrimination at all to say that in Kenya we have super rich people who are the minority and super poor pple who are the majority.
Karue:The irony is, every electoral cycle politicians on podiums proclaim to the masses that there are only two tribes in Kenya; the rich and the poor. Now that that discourse seems to be the deciding factor in 2022, suddenly it's classism.
