Esther Passaris, the Nairobi Woman Representative has savagely told off a social media user who suggested that she might have used dubious means to amass wealth.
Trouble began after Passaris said she received her first mobile phone from deceased ex president Daniel Moi. She also revealed that in 1997, Moi awarded her a business deal worth about KSh 5 million.
On learning this, a tweep identified as Hilda Muteshi took a swipe at critics of the lawmaker urging them to observe their lanes since Passaris started making hay for herself many years ago.
“You are here busy abusing Esther yet she made millions before you were born. Methinks you need to observe lanes and ask God to show you the way. Respect those who came before you,” Muteshi reacted.
The remarks offended one of Passaris’s detractors Fredrick Obola who differed stating that he was only concerned with the means used by the MP to get her wealth. “Does how matter Hilda?” Obola responded to Muteshi’s tweet.
Disappointed by the sentiments, Passaris tore into Obola arguing that how she got her wealth was none of his business and it didn’t matter even if she was a “commercial sex worker”.
The MP faulted Obola for what she termed as trying to police women and also suffering from low self esteem.
“Even if I were a ‘commercial sex worker’ what business is it of yours? Carry your cross and let me carry mine. No matter what I do, how I do it , you will always find fault. Why? You have a very low self esteem. Stop trying to police women. I am not your punching bag,” Passaris threw a salvo.
Jabril Ndiema defended Passaris stating that those who are used to attacking her for no apparent reason were idle with nothing constructive to put across. “Idle men are after Hon. Esther. They have nothing constructive to say,” Ndiema reacted.
