National Assembly Majority Leader Hon Aden Duale

The Majority Leader in the National Assembly Hon Aden Duale’s efforts to praise the government for bringing electricity down to the rural areas did not go down well with a majority of Kenyans online.

The vocal legislator got himself heavy criticisms after he shared his sentiments on the Jubilee government’s manifesto to bring electricity to all Kenyans through rural electrification- the Last Mile Connectivity Program.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, the Garissa Township MP lauded Uhuru’s government for bringing electricity to Garissa County and specifically his constituency.

However, what got netizens talking was the image of a grass-thatched house being connected to electricity that the MP used.

Here are some of the tweets as Kenyans reacted to the Majority Leader’s comment on the rural electrification initiative by the Jubilee government:
