Reactions After Jalas Posted The Team That Will Participate In E. Africa Interparliamentary Games

Comedian Felix Odiwor, alias Jalang’o, is the Lang’ata Member of Parliament after he won a hotly contested race. Mr. Odiwor was running on an ODM Party ticket and garnered 38,948 votes, with his main rival, the incumbent MP Nixon Korir, collecting 36,836 votes.

Hours ago, through his official Facebook page Jalang'o has posted the football team that will represent the country at the East Africa Interparliamentary games. The team is comprised of people who are currently in power.

The post has received mixed reactions from Kenyans where one said that the money spent to facilitate the event should have been used to help Kenyans who are starving instead of creating a paybill number and asking Kenyans to forgo salaries. Another one said that the people in parliament don't have a talent in football and they are sponsored quickly to take place in the games while a team like Harambee stars which is full of talent continue suffering. “How does the East Africa games help the common citizen?” a Kenyan asked. What are your views on this?
