Moral cop Ezekiel Mutua has slammed Embakasi East MP Babu Owino over his latest remarks against Kandara MP Alice Wahome.
Babu Owino on Saturday took to social media promising to shave every part of Alice Wahome that has hair should she fail to respect President Uhuru Kenyatta and former premier Raila Odinga.
“Alice Wahome must respect Baba and President Uhuru or we will shave every part of her body that has hair.This is not a threat it’s a promise,” Babu Owino posted.
Mutua says politicians are okay to exchange barbs for political mileage but Babu Owino’s language is unacceptable.
He termed the language as crude and barbaric, noting that the language must not be accepted in a civilized society.
Mutua says political leaders are behaving badly and setting a bad example for the youth.
“It’s ok for politicians to differ and to exchange barbs for political mileage, but this kind of language from an MP is unacceptable. It’s crude and barbaric and must not be accepted in a civilised society. Our leaders are behaving badly and setting a bad example for the youth!” he posted.
Dr Mutua’s comment came moments after Nairobi women representative Esther Passaris tore into Babu Owino over the same remarks.
Passaris termed the post as a disrespect to women, urging Babu Owino to pull it down.
“Babu respect women. You can only shave your wife not a fellow legislator, or any other woman without their explicit consent. Any action to the contrary will be an act of defilement. I am extremely disappointed with this post. Pull it down. There’re boundaries we should not cross,” she tweeted.Do you have any story you would like to share?
