Shebesh trolled for ‘imitating’ Safaricom customer care lady
Nairobi Women Representative Rachel Shebesh was over the weekend trolled for imitating the magnanimous gesture of a Safaricom customer care attendant Pauline Muganda who was pictured kneeling on the floor to assist a disabled beggar.
Ms Shebesh was pictured seated cross-legged on a sidewalk next to a disabled man, a posture that was widely perceived on social media as meant to milk political scores.
In the photos, Ms Shebesh was captured leaning on her left hand while seated and giving full attention to the disabled man.
In a second photo, she is captured wheeling the man away in a wheelchair as onlookers who wore Jubilee Party t-shirts watched.
Kenyans on Twitter have accused Shebesh of pulling a public relations stunt with the disabled man.

Safaricom Cistomer Care attendant was the centre of adoration when photos of her gesture went viral on social media, warming the hearts of many including the chairman of the National Council for Persons with Disabilities Mr David Sankok.
The 25 year old during an interview said she was just assisting the client as directed by her supervisor.
