Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja fell into trouble after he posted photos of his visit to a dusitD2 attack victim last evening.
The senator visited Emmanuel Omala’s home and even helped clear his hospital bill at the KNH.
While Sakaja expected to be showered with praise for such an “admirable” act coming from a politician, he received the exact opposite.
Emmanuel Omala is such an amazing soul & represents the spirit of the Kenyan people. Glad to have visited him earlier on today and cleared his bill at KNH. He is recuperating well and realizes that after surviving 7 bullets, God has a great plan for him. Keep him in your prayers. pic.twitter.com/Sdf0eKiTdp

One social media user took the opportunity to call out Sakaja and went on to remind him that we was a Senator, not an ordinary citizen and he should, therefore, be working to fix the system from within instead of having to settle individual hospital bills.
Hey bro, if our system worked you would not have to pay his bill. You are a senator. You can start fixing the system instead of paying bills. Universal healthcare for all Kenyans is possible. Our economy has too much wasted money because of theft and corruption. https://t.co/KvEatWl2an

Many Kenyans who were tired of Sakaja’s unquenchable thirst for publicity flooded Mr Mwabili’s post in agreement moments after he made the tweet.
“Super” senator thrives on this kind of publicity and photo opportunities. Instead of fixing the root causes of such cases he is always busy throwing away afew thousand shillings. What about those not able to get their plight highlighted in such forums.

If the system works he wouldn't be here bragging about clearing the bill.. bragging is something very key with our politicians after corruption of course..

A working system is not good for the optics 😅. Watajuaje Bwana Siasa Safi anafanya kazi.

Can't fix the system. He is a beneficiary of the system.
Such acts are good photo sessions, they also endear him to the tribal angle where he will exploit later to be elected.
The more people can't afford Healthcare the more politicians benefit.
