South African MP shocked by Kenya’s nominated senator’s lifestyle after visit

Hours after landing in Kenya, South African Member of Parliament Nqabayomzi Kwankwa was quick to notice the lavish lifestyle of Kenyan legislators.

The South African MP took to social media on Thursday, February 6, 2020, in an attempt to protest his own treatment as a legislator in South Africa.

Kwankwa highlighted the presence of a driver, bodyguard, personal assistant, researcher, communications officer and administration assistant at the disposal of a Kenyan MP as the upside of being a Kenyan MP, resources that are not available to South African legislators.
