MP refers to Ababu Namwamba as ‘Budalangi resident’, Twitter in stitches
Budalang’i MP Raphael Wanjala has left a section of Kenyans online in stitches after referring to his predecessor Ababu Namwamba as a ‘resident’.
Mr Wanjala made the remark on his Facebook page while commenting on the signing of a sh10 billion irrigation project to be constructed in Busia county.
The event at Maji house was attended by Water Secretary Euguene Wamalwa and Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong.
The jibe at Mr Namwamba, a former MP and Minister for Sports during the Kibaki regime, elicited mixed reactions.

A good one! @AbabuNamwamba is now a mere "resident" of Budalangi. How life changes!
