Various Kenyans took offence with the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga with regards to his scheduled dinner at Kempinsky hotel.
Apparently, Raila Odinga has organized a dinner on 7th December 2021 and will be charging one million Kenya shillings for every person attending.
“Welcome to BABA’s ONE MILLION Dinner ON TUESDAY DEC. 07TH, 2021. VENUE: HOTEL KEMPINSKY NAIROBI. TIME: 6.00PM PROMPTLY CONTACT: AKUMU +254721785975 inawezekana!” Read Raila Odinga’s dinner invite.
However, Kenyans expressed mixed reactions with regards to the amount charged. Below is how they reacted:
“This dinner could have been done probably in Turkana county and then the funds help dig dams to curb the drought prevalence experienced in the area and save lives.”
“Khaaai, this is the president some sections of Kenya want, acha tu hiyo siku, nilale, I would better die on my feet(not voting) than die on my knees (Voting baba).”
“Yani watu huku injr wanakufa njaa watoto wanafukuzwa shule juu ya fee wengine. kufungiwa manyumba juu hawana pesa instead of helping those ni dinner ya 1m mnapanga Yani hii kenya ni lanes. The rich getting rich 🤑 while the poor becomes poorer of the poorest so 😭.”
“This Guy is extremely mean when Ruto is paying back 77 times yeye hata Ile ya kazi kwa vijana hawezi toa mpaka mchango useless old man bondo express.”
“Lanes! Mimi a million naskianga tu, my meal on a lucky day when I’m out is “chapati nyeshea’ yaani two chapos na soup and I call it lunch😎 for real I don’t know the direction where some people face while praying 🙄 oh God, remember me.”
“In that plate, let there be hidden car keys mixed up with the food. Otherwise I’ll eat my CNN pale kibandasky, the bottom up way.”
“Raila should not vie if he is not ready to use his own money. Let him leave this thing for Ruto.”
“Mko na mauchungu ya nini? If you can’t afford keep off. We gona dine with baba pale kempinski on 7th tukingoja azimio la umoja Nairobi on 10th. Continue lamenting.”
“Kweli mwenye shibe hamjui mwenye njaa. What if he started an initiative to raise funds for those who are facing hunger and starvation from the wrangles of drought. Where is compassion and kindness or it is in the 6k monthly stipend promise. Earth is HARD!”
“Muite tu Ruto the 5th awachangie mara moja na muwache kujiaibisha🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣Sasa tu kuenda kasarani kutangaza candidature ashaanza kuomba then arudi Sasa na paybill tumchangie ya campaign!!!!! Kwani akiwa president atatulipa salary kila mwezi kurudisha pesa alichangiwa???? Nkt!!!! Mzee aende nyumbani. TUMECHOKA!!!”
“Last election was caanan. Now its last super and Jesus wept.comedy always.citizen are suffering paying school fees others struggling with disease other are hit by drought. Na usisahao mambo ya six thao per month.”
“Let Raila invite Ruto. He can single handedly fund your Baba’s campaign! Mimi Kama hustler sipangwingwi 🙅”
