Kenyans hjave expressed their anger towards the Members of Parliament who spent millions of money to watch the World Cup in Russia, but snubbed Harambee Stars against Ghana at Kasarani.
Last Saturday the Kenyan national football team Harambee Stars crushed Ghana’s Black Stars 1-0 and none of the legislators were in sight.
The Russia delegation which featured Senators Millicent Omanga, James Orengo, Kipchumba Murkomen, Cleophas Malala and Aaron Cheruiyot, Members of Parliament Peter Kaluma, Wafula Wamunyinyi and Victor Munyaka, were not at Kasarani.
However a different delegation all together was present cheering harambee stars led by opposition leader Raila Odinga, former senator Johnstone Muthama, Senator Johnson Sakaja, Gladys Wanga and former Woman Representative Priscilla Nyokabi.
Kenyans online lashed at the legislators who used tax payers’ money to watch the World Cup and could not attend a local match featuring the national team.

LOL!!!! @NAssemblyKE Just wait till the MPs who went to #RussiaWorldCup2018 to “benchmark” for Kenyan football turn up to take credit for the victory. High time we differentiate between “fakers” and “makers”. Well done to the lads for the win.
