Controversial former Nairobi rep aspirant Karen Nyamu over the weekend shocked many after she was pictured smoking.
Karen was attending this year's Koth Biro finals at the iconic Umeme Grounds in Ziwani, where Kingstone FC beat Allin Jua Kali.
Nyamu, who was seated in a crowd of football fans, could be seen puffing before passing it to a male fanatic who was seated next to her. Other people surrounding her were busy chewing mogoka.
The politicians actions comes barely days after Sonko said that weed should be legalised.
KEN ALIKUA NA MSWADA WA MAANA SANA. WATU WANAOGOPA KUONGEA VITU CONTROVERSIAL, MIMI NITAONGEA. HUYU NDUGU YETU ALITAKA KU-LEGALISE MARIJUANA AMA BHANGI. IKONA DAWA YA CANCER,' He said during Ken Okoth's memorial service.
The flashy governor urged young politicians, the likes of Babu Owino, KJ and Jaguar to continue fighting for marijuana to be legalized, adding that it should come from Jamaica.
ENDELEENI NA HIYO MSWADA BHAGI IKUE LEGALISED. NA MNAONA PIA RAIS ANAENDA JAMAICA NA IKIPITISHWA TUTAHAKIKISHA ILE BHANGI SAFI INAKUJA KUTOKA JAMICA KAMA NDIO ITALETA DAWA YA CANCER.
Okoth was trying to push for legalisation of weed in the country, saying it had medicinal benefits.
Kenyans have reacted to Karen smoking in public and below are some of the comments;
Charles Omolo Political class will always do anything to please the voter! Karen Nyamu had to smoke to please them! #UshenziKE
Keem Karen Nyamu has just elicited another blow to a Kenyan woman after seen smoking weed in public which knows to be illegal. Doesn't she wants to be an aspirant or just gotten spoiled shame
Betterman Simidi Musasia Waiting to see whether DCI will put her in lawful custody like the youth who use this drug!
Otieno John How canshe smoke bhang in public. What is she encouraging
Makova Kevin Snr The campaign to legalize marijuana is taking the wrong path, I am pro-marijuana despite every negative publicity lakini when leaders and the media ride on such a sensitive topic for careless public opinion we now lose the main objective...
Douglas Omurwa I used to smoke this until I went nuts... Can't touch it.
Eugine Kay Kayleen Waiting for Sonko to give a press conference 😅😅
Jerry Nicey She's avoiding cancer what's the big deal
Karen later responded to critics, telling them to talk about her sponsoring the event as well.
Why don't you also say that I sponsored cash awards in the individual category in the same tournament.
