They say birds of the same feather flock together. This was the case when Nasa and Jubilee politicians found themselves in one room at the Pangani police station.
This was after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and former Machakos senator Johnston Muthama were arrested for allegedly spewing hate words against Nasa leader Raila Odinga and Jubilee’s President Uhuru Kenyatta respectively.
A picture capturing the politicians’ camaraderie in the room sharing jokes and laughing together attracted hundreds of comments from Facebook users.
Patrick Njoroge retorted: “What’s funny? Everyone is laughing. It Looks like a get together. You guys are taking the Kenyan people for granted.”
Mike Kimani Githinji said: “Si mgongane mangumi na Raila hapo instead ya kuchochea wakenya wapigane.”
Another Joyce Lewis added, “Raila hapa amekunja kuonyesha ametembelea Kuria as friend, mteti mwenza na as bro. so let’s be wise wenzangu. if u can b arrested today bcoz of them do you think they can care? who cares?” while Everton Boo said: “The chickens who make us feel like Kenya is burning, whilst they comfort each other and count their spoils.”
Peter Kariuki went on: “Every time you take a stone, a panga or an arrow to fight your fellow poor Kenyan, always remember this photo. They insight (sic) and arm you to go and fight or destroy property and when one of their own is arrested they come together to free them. Be wise and know politicians only have their interest at heart, you are just a tissue paper to use and dump.”
Macdonjohn Rufas was also equally shocked: “Walai Kenyans tunatumiwa ufala kabisa, I can’t believe these politicians they are now sitting together en they seem to be much in peace, while we remain storming each other killing because of them ,now it’s high tym we take turn.”
On his part, Watson Gichu said, “Moses Kuria na Raila hawana shida mbona wakenya hukubali kutumiwa sisi ndio wajinga wanasiasa hawana la kulaumiwa,” while Musoga Ebby quipped: “Seriously Moses Kuria hii kelele wewe upiga hapa fb kuhusu raila na naona mko pamoja hapo, si umudhai kila anakuanga nacho chako mumalizane.”
