Khaemba’s insinuation that he needs a second breast in bad taste

By Veronica Onjoro | April 1st 2016

The insinuation by governor Patrick Khaemba that he needs a second breast is disrespectful to women.

I was shocked beyond words that governor Khaemba likened asking residents for a second term to a woman's second breast.

This is in bad taste. “Mothers breastfeed their children with two breasts and you have fed me with one. Consider me for the second breast.”

That is ill-mannered. Is he a toddler? Was he drinking baby milk as a governor?

We women cannot give examples using body parts of men, but men can mention such words in broad daylight.

This is unacceptable and he should respect women. Is he telling us that he reveled himself instead of governing Trans Nzoia County? Let leaders respect women.

The unusual has become the norm such that it has stunted the imagination of those who have a duty to point out to the emperor that he has no clothes.
