Paul Ongili Owino, popularly known as Babu Owino, is a Kenyan politician who represents the Embakasi East Constituency in the National Assembly. As the chairperson of Nairobi University's Students Organization, he attracted media attention.
Taking to his official Facebook account, he has left Kenyans furious for attacking deputy president Dr William Ruto. According him, Nyang'au is not an insult, it's a Kisii name meaning a Bloody wealthy young kid and it also means a hyena which describes Ruto well.
Kenyans however, never took the joke lightly. They have ganged up on Babu Owino's lack of respect.
"Kubaff is not an insult,it's a kamba name meaning WELL EDUCATED COOL KID and it also means a monkey which describes Babu Owino well," one Kenyan responded.
Another one reacted, "In the morning I saw u posted some bible verse and that led to my conclusion that u r a Christian. I don't know if it's true but if true then you should read that bible and understand what it says about leadership. Respect other leaders. Criticize without name-calling. I don't support Ruto buy I don't think your words are the best you could use to express him."
Here are the responds Kenyans are reacting with.
