ODM party leader Hon Raila Odinga joins many other prominent Kenyans whose appetite to devour kibanda delicacies has become irresistible despite their celebrity status.

Raila who was flanked by notable politicians enjoyed their lunch of chicken stew and sukuma wiki at a popular joint when they toured Burma market, Nairobi on 27th May 2019.

“Great hosting Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga and Senior Counsel Senator James Orengo together with Makadara MP Aladwa for lunch and interacting with wananchi at Burma Market earlier today,” posted Nairobi Senator Hon Johnson Sakaja.

Vibandas are often in a makeshift structure and majorly frequented by the hustling class – not DP William Ruto – in the society as they are considered ‘cheap’.

Also, in most roadside vibandas, customers squeeze themselves on the benches as opposed to the comfy sofa seats witnessed in the high-end restaurants.

Other than Raila, some big names have also been spotted visiting vibandas in various corners of the country. To them, hunger does do recognise their celebrity status.

Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto is a common victim here. DP Ruto posted photos in 2016 when having lunch with Umoja estate residents during his working tour in Embakasi West Constituency, Nairobi County.

In 2016, President Uhuru Kenyatta while accompanied by Jubilee politicians, Gov Mike Sonko, Sen Johnoson Sakaja and Rachel Shebesh made an impromptu visit at Burma Market where they feasted on nyama choma at a popular joint.

Here is the video:

Earlier in 2015, President Uhuru and Governor Mutua bought madiaba soda from a kiosk in Machakos County to quench their thirst.


In their own right, Machakos governor, Dr Alfred Mutua and Uasin Gishu County Gov Jackson Mandago also love kibanda foodstuff judging from the following photos.

Nairobi County senator Johnson Sakaja, appears to top the list since he has been spotted in vibandasky with various politicians.

In March, he posted a photo on social media while taking a meal of the most cherished githeri at joint flanked by jua kali guys and humble Kenyans.

Who among these politicians offers the best lesson?
