Passaris’ hard tackle on Babu Owino not good enough for KOT
Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris has come under harsh criticism from Kenyans on Twitter for not doing enough to censure Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili, alias Babu Owino, for his abusive remarks.
Ms Passaris had in a statement on Monday condemned Babu Owino for his alleged abusive remarks directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta at a rally in Kawangware on Sunday.
Netizens however were not impressed by her statement, terming it as too little, too late.
They argued Ms Passaris should have told off Bbabu Owino at the rally since she was in attendance and was among the speakers, instead of waiting until there was a public uproar over the remarks.
Others also wondered why she has never issued a similar scathing statement when Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria makes vile remarks directed to Nasa coalition flag bearer Raila Odinga.
Here are some of the responses.

If you r really sincere about condemning his remarks you would have done it immediately after he said it. What type of women rep exmple r u?

Looks like you're the one who's fixed @Babu_Owino because he didn't mention any name and from your statement, you've filled in the script.

It will be clever not to jump into every war. You also supported Sonko's Matatu CBD removal too. Refer to Kiambu Women rep's debauchery
