The new year has begun with another Twitter fight,this time between Nairobi County Women representative Esther Passaris and rapper King Kaka.
Last week the legislator revealed that she had traveled to India for a spinal surgery and her recovery journey was going great.
However Kenyans on Twitter did not take too kindly that she had sought medical care in another country while public healthcare, especially Kenyatta National Hospital was deteriorating. Passaris quickly noted that she had before leaving for India consulted at least 10 Kenyan medics, but none offered a lasting solution.
Rapper Kennedy Ombima alias King Kaka called out Passaris and said the lawmaker should have started a conversation around bettering the healthcare system in Kenya.
“@EstherPassaris shame shame Shame. The talk should be on how we have made our health reliable to the point you are getting your surgery at KNH. Wewe Uko Hapo unatuambia juu ya 50million. Stop being selfish for once , just for once and serve the people who put you there. Shame,” he wrote.
This was after a voter blasted Passaris for sharing her experience in India. To this, the MP said, she had invested Sh50 million just to get elected.
Responding to the rapper, Passaris, 55, called out the ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ hitmaker referring to him as being so ‘full and fooled by yourself.’
“You are so ‘full and fooled’ by yourself. ‘Words’ can instruct but they don’t do the work or lead. Let me spell it as it is. Get off your high horse & stop being who you truly are #WajingaNyinyi who thinks through hate you can drive or derive change. I have worked & served. You?” she posed.
King Kaka urged the MP asking her to get treatment first and then engage him in a conversation when she is back on her feet.
“You know we still need you in Nairobi so I will say a prayer today wishing you a speedy recovery since your wounds are still fresh. All those who have been retweeting her tweets also whisper a prayer. Kunywa dawa na ulale, when healed then we can engage,” his quirky response read.
In King Kaka’s 2019 hit ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ he addressed the public health care system and the fact that Kenyan voters are fools because politicians often seek treatment abroad rather than get treated locally.
