Respect our choice and we’ll respect yours, Kenyans tell Passaris

By Wambui Mbuthia | October 26th 2017

Nairobi County women representative Esther Passaris on the morning of October 26 went to twitter reminding Kenyans that NASA leader Raila Odinga withdrew from the race because he lacked confidence in Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

She said that for the process to go on, all Kenyans and not just Jubilee supporters need to have trust in it. Passaris declared this as reason for her not to vote.

Here is her early morning post;

Kenyans on Twitter went on to give her a piece of their mind with majority asking her to respect their decision to vote while others supported her cause.

Here are some of their tweets;
