Stop embarrassing Kenya by partying in clubs, Sudi tells Kenyans abroad

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, the man nicknamed “Engineer” based on his political strategies and mobilisation, has come out to send a message to Kenyan youth abroad.

According to Sudi, the majority of people who make to go to the US, and European countries tend to forget their main purpose, ending up indulging in other issues which are not productive.

While addressing the residents in Keses, Uasin Gishu County, Sudi said that some parents make sacrifices for their children by selling their parcels of land to send them abroad for studies and better jobs.

“Your parent sells land, sells cattle, the church raises funds for you and once you are in Australia, America, London, Finland and other places outside the country, I’m begging you, don’t lose focus,” Sudi said.

He alleged that some Kenyans in Australia have been binge drinking alcohol and partying ceaselessly.

“Kuna shida imepatikana huko Australia, ana lazima tuambiane ukweli. Watoto wetu wamefika huko Autralia na wameanza kula sherehe. Wanasanyana kama watoto wa kutoka Kenya, wanaenda kwa bar wanakunywa pombe na wanasahau ni nini iliwapeleka kule na hiyo kitu inafanyika pia kule Amerika (There is a problem in Australia, and we must speak the truth. Our children reached there and started partying. They have formed a clique to go to bars, drinking alcohol, and forgetting why they went there, and this is also happening in America),” Sudi said.

The outspoken MP is now asking Kenyans abroad not to burden their families, and the community by failing to achieve what took them there.

“Stop stressing your parents and the community. We have lost many children through accidents, and murder…let’s be honest, if your child dies from using drugs, speak the truth, and say that your child has been using drugs and after going to bed he/she never woke up again.”

The MP recently celebrated the academic achievement of her daughter Faith Chemutai, who graduated with a Master’s Degree in Finance Management from the University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom.

As a result of honouring the advice from her father by focusing on what took her there, Ms Chemutai was gifted an apartment in Nairobi and a vehicle.
