Kenyan politicians are becoming more vulgar by the day and it has left us wondering if these are the kind of leaders whose examples we should follow.
Some of these leaders are mothers and fathers but their vulgarity would make the devil cringe.
Below are some of the most vulgar comments we have heard from our politicians.
The Laikipia women representative told Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru to go and give birth first for her newly wed husband, Kamotho Waiganjo.
Speaking during the Inua Mama rally in Uasin Gishu county on Sunday, November 10,2019.
The Laikipia lawmaker said the governor was still green in politics as she was a first-time governor.
“Let me remind Waiguru that just because she was fronted by the Jubilee party, it doesn’t mean she is the Wangu Makeri of the Mt. Kenya region,” an angry Cate said.
The visibly angry legislator was disgusted by the governor’s support for the Building Bridges Initiatives (BBI) and told her to first give birth before thinking of the initiative.
“Iko kamama kengine apa, mimi sijui. Ameolewa juzi atatumbo ya kwanza haijatupatia mtoto. Lakini sai anafikiria ile kitu kubwa atazaa ati nikutuzalia BBI.
Mwambieni oooooooh,” Said Waruguru
Garissa Woman Rep Anab Subow
The female politician is the latest to go on a vulgar spree after calling opposition leader Raila Odinga uncircumcised.
In a video that has gone viral, Subow is heard referring to Raila as a ‘devil who is not circumcised’.
“Shetani ashindwee…na huyu mzee anaitwa baba, sijui ni baba ya nani. Huyu mzee ni mkubwa hata hajatahirishwa.
Yeye ni baba lakini aende Bondo akatahirishwe kwanza. Kwani yeye ni nani, mbona hazeeki,” Subow said.
This loosely means,
“Rebuke the devil….. this mzee called Baba and I don’t know whose baba he is.
He is old but he is not circumcised. He might be baba but let him go to Bondo and be circumcised first. Whom does he think he is, why is he not getting old”.
Subow went on to say,
“Anasema Kibra ni yake, but sisi tunajua Kibra ni ya wakenya…..sio bedroom yake. Tutampeleka Bondo aende azeeke akufie huko”.
(He is saying Kibra belongs to him, but we know Kibra belongs to all Kenyans and not his bedroom. We shall take him to Bondo where he shall age gracefully and die).
The Mwingi Central MP claimed to have a bigger mkuki between his legs than President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.
On October 23 this year, while addressing a political rally at Kalundu market in Kitui town, he insulted President Uhuru when he uttered in Kamba language that,
“We mwikuyu niwe wonaa tawikisithe kiasa kusinda mukamba…ngaumisya suluali vaa withia nina kisithe kiasa kukila Uhuru wa Kenyatta,”
Whose loose English translation means the president and other men from his community mistakenly think they have bigger male organs than Kambas.
The second charge of hate speech was also in relation to the president in which he is said to have uttered,
“Uhuru natavw’e aekane na twilitu twitu (Uhuru should be advised to leave our girls alone) referring to Kitui South MP Rachel Nyamai (Jubilee) and Foreign Affairs principal secretary Monica Juma, accused of inciting ethnic hatred.
The third count stated that on the same day and venue, Mulyungi insulted former Senator Musila by calling him shoga, a Kiswahili word largely taken to mean ‘gay,’ though it can be used among women to denote ‘friend.’
The controversial politician is never shy of hitting back at whoever crosses her path.
Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko in August 2019 engaged in a bitter war of words on social media.
The ugly public war between the two politicians was triggered by the matrimonial life of the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth.
Sonko claimed publicly that the late Kibra MP, who was cremated on Saturday, had a second wife with whom he sired a son.
His remarks made during Okoth’s memorial service, however, didn’t go well with some political figures, particularly Odhiambo and Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura.
Okoth’s memorial service to earn cheap publicity.
“HOW, SONKO BEHAVED MUST BE CONDEMNED IN THE STRONGEST TERMS POSSIBLE. THEN, AFTER ALL THAT, THEY STILL PUT AN INJUNCTION?
DIDN’T THEY KNOW, THEY COULD HAVE JUST DONE, THAT QUIETLY WITHOUT TAKING, THE FOCUS AWAY FROM THE BEREAVED?
“THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS, SONKO, HAD NOT AN IOTA OF RESPECT FOR KEN IN HIS DEFENSELESS MOMENT IN DEATH, HE CHOSE TO GO FOR THE WEAKEST LINK.
HOW DO YOU EMBARRASS ONE WOMAN TO PLEASE THE OTHER?” She wrote on Facebook.
Sonko then responded with an insult-laden Facebook post on Sunday.
Sonko criticized the MP for saying he was wrong to have meddled in the Kibra MP’s personal affairs during the memorial service of the late Okoth.
He accused Odhiambo of having a ‘weird marital life’ and lacked the moral authority to lecture anyone on matters of marriage.
The governor also accused Odhiambo of hypocrisy, for her actions supported the actions of absentee fathers.
Sonko gave out hotline numbers for women who have been ‘abandoned’ by politicians who fathered children with them, to reach him for his personal intervention on such matters.
“In fact, from today all the great women of this country ukijua kuna MP Senator, Governor, civil servant, businessman amekuweka ball na akakuruka (who made you pregnant and disappeared) send your details to 0722886600/0739555555 tumuanike na tuforce (we expose him by force) for DNA when he’s still alive,”he wrote.
After four hours, the outspoken Suba North MP fired back at the flamboyant governor.
“I, Wakili Millie Odhiambo, pushed for Article 53 of the Constitution that protects Ken Okoth’s son.
Once the DNA confirms that he is Ken Okoth’s son, he will be entitled under the succession law, to inherit from Ken’s estate. He is protected. He is covered,”she wrote
Odhiambo went on to tell the governor how she has taken ‘mighty’ men who have failed their responsibilities to court.
“I have taken many mighty men to court (including MPs) and settled out of court with many in cases of parental support (including MPs, Cabinet Secretaries and Media personalities).
I do not need to shout at funerals to get court orders,” she said.
The MP also blamed Sonko for ‘unnecessary drama’ that led to Okoth’s body not being taken to Kabondo Kasipul as planned earlier on.
“Your unnecessary drama spiralled a behind the scenes series of events that resulted in Okoth’s body not being taken to Kabondo” Odhiambo scoffed at Sonko.
Sonko, attacked Odhiambo revealing her childlessness condition citing that the legislator would not understand the pain of single mothers for she has no child.
” I am longing for the day you shall open wide your legs to give birth to a child so that you experience the pain that the mothers I am defending go through.
You must respect those single mothers who struggle with their kids as men go missing,” Sonko posted.
In response, Odhiambo said she is proud of her childless condition.
” I am proudly childless just like several other women and men. Let us all be proud of our various God-given creations including commas and full stops,” Odhiambo posted.
