MP Mohammed Ali’s response to ‘fan’ on Twitter angers Kenyans

By Vincent Kejitan | July 2nd 2018

Nyali Member of Parliament (MP) Mohammed Ali was on Saturday questioned over a driving school project he had launched and his response to a tweep drew a myriad of reactions.

The initiative dubbed Nyali Driving School Bursary Fund is set to fully sponsor 215 beneficiaries to various driving schools in the region but one King Fred Asira questioned the viability of the project.

“If you train everyone in Nyali to be a driver, who will be driven?” he asked.

Ali then responded: “Uko na akili ndogo kama sabuni ya lodging!”

This did not go down well with netizens who felt that the lawmaker should have responded in a more respectable way that befits his status.

Here are some of the reactions:

Afadhali yangu ni ndogo. Yako unayo? Ama ilinyakuliwa kwa helicopter?

Fred, guys like moha are unteachable. He should have stuck to that pretense of investigative thing of his or the reggae program. Now he is clearly out of his depth— Bavon Marie Marie (@francis_mmakau) July 1, 2018

Interesting to see how adversely people change after they get to parliament— BOBO (@SamanthaNyobia) July 1, 2018

Yet they act so humble when hunting for the votes. ????— BOBO (@SamanthaNyobia) July 1, 2018
