Passaris’ hard tackle on Babu Owino not good enough for KOT

By NAIRA HABIB September 26th, 2017 1 min read

Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris has come under harsh criticism from Kenyans on Twitter for not doing enough to censure Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili, alias Babu Owino, for  his abusive remarks.

Ms Passaris had in a statement on Monday condemned Babu Owino for his alleged abusive remarks directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta at a rally in Kawangware on Sunday.

Netizens however were not impressed by her statement, terming it as too little, too late.

They argued Ms Passaris should have told off Bbabu Owino at the rally since she was in attendance and was among the speakers, instead of waiting until there was a public uproar over the remarks.

Others also wondered why she has never issued a similar scathing statement when Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria makes vile remarks directed to Nasa coalition flag bearer Raila Odinga.

Here are some of the responses.
