Check them out:
@DRatemo: @HonAnabGure Who told you that you are beautiful?yawk
@Akinyi19Abongo: Honorable bonoko, respect your elders!
@crazytojoin: How true. Islam doesn’t allow you to call anyone ugly. If you have a dislike, keep it to yourself. Respect the elders. Arrogance is from satan. Be careful such words do not come to bite you
@oyimbabrian: Masomo bado ni kidogo garissa.hii ni reasoning ya mp???
@afgangstar: U the reason why people don’t believe women in leadership can bring change, which is a wrong notion, we just have a wrong woman in that seat. Your husband should be ashamed to call you a wife.. We have women like rep
@LentoMemusi: But mheshimiwa your reasoning is equal to that of a zygote
@MartinMarete: My sincere condolences to the father of your baby. I hear children take after their Mum’s intelligence.
@AsumaEnock: You are the same kind of creature that called “respect for women” during the Babu Owino, Passaris and Alice Wahome fracas and you expect pple to express emotions just because it’s a woman wtf
@OwitiOyuko: That’s Allah’s Creation madam.
Appreciate what you’ve and stop looking down at others, don’t forget our history.
