Susan Kihika tweeted James Orengo, big mistake
Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika has felt the wrath of angry Kenyans on Twitter after she tagged her Siaya counterpart James Orengo in a post about the repeat presidential poll.
Orengo had in a Tuesday press conference said the electoral commission is only concerned about holding elections within the stipulated 60 days and not concerned about the issues raised by the opposition.
Ms Kihika quoted Orengo’s statement telling the Senior Counsel that the electoral commission was holding the repeat election as required by the Supreme Court ruling that nullified the presidential election.
She went on to tag the Senior Counsel who represented Raila Odinga in the petition telling him she could send him the ruling on direct message if he didn’t have it.
The statement did not go down well with Kenyans on Twitter as they asked the Nakuru senator why she would even think of calling out a lawyer who won a presidential election petition.
Madam i dont think you qualify for a battle with the intellects be guided

You cannot even spell the name of the SCOK President right. If you want to drag SC Orengo into th same kind of arguments u hv on Tv, desist.
