Babu Owino lights up social media with lesbian jibe on Sauti Sol

By CHAD KITUNDU October 15th, 2017 1 min read

Embakasi East Member of Parliament, Babu Owino, has stirred up the hornet’s nest with a distasteful post touching on lesbianism directed at award winning Kenyan band Sauti Sol.

In an apparent response to a recent tweet by Sauti Sol that seemed to disparage the two leading political outfits in the country – Jubilee Party and Nasa – the controversial legislator posted a photo of the group on his Facebook page with a caption that simply read:

“Why should men dress like lesbians?”


This is why Sauti Sol is trending on Twitter

The post, as expected sparked a flurry of comments from the online community, with opinion divided on the appropriateness of Babu’s dig at the group.
