He captioned the above pic:

Police in Ugunja, are looking for an MP-elect for having caused actual body harm to a leader of a political party during a by-election.

This did not go well with netizens. They came out to lash out at him, other even referring to him as childish, claiming he had gone too far with his jokes.

Reactions include:

Dennis Kipkosgei That is ‘DR. Boni Khalwale’ former Kakamega Senator stooping too low like a teenager suffering from arrested adolescence. I cry.

Julius Maumo @KBonimtetezi , where do i take the respect I have for you sir? What happened to my senator? What happed to the man who saw Kimunya out of the finance ministry for corruption? I weep
Khalwale, who was once a biggest suipporter of Raila Odinga has been throwing shades at ODM after he ditched their leader.

Amakanji Thomas I am ashamed! Very ashamed to be a luhya indeed.. a whole Doctor doing such mediocrity to appease his boss online🤷🏽‍♂️ Oparanya needs another term**I wish** this kind of leaders are a nuisance

Abdinasir Ibrahim FBI is also looking for @GovWOparanya for reducing you to a blogger and a professional funeral mourner.

Ike Kenneth I know you are trying to impress Ruto but this is low. ….

Dennis Kiplimo To the other leaders who atleast have a sound mind, I beseech that at no point in your political career should you ever reason this way or decide to be this petty.

Thomaskan Rachid Echesa might be a Primary School dropout but reasons n thinks better than u. What ur posting here is something which either ur son or daughter should post but not a person of ur calibre who wants to be the Governor of Kakamega County 2022. I pity you.

Opiyo 😂😂 this is how revolutionaries look like.? The inner morals of a leader is not far from how they reason, carry themselves or express themselves. But again, maybe hivi ndio anatetea wanyonge, who am I to judge?

Lwunza Big shame to a person who wants to be governor Just concentrate in bullfighting

Yells Smh..tell me why Kakamega voters should even consider you? Shame.

Joseph Moindi Am disappointed on how petty the former senator has become..! Seems like losing an election can make one insane!

Mahmud Abdukadir Sad and shame indeed,a doctor gone dat low… bure kabisa. Who cursed mulembe nation. Ur not different from Achesa 😲😲

Mandela Oncwati You have become so irrevant that you have to do stupid things like Itumbi and Vera Sidika to remain relevant
