As Jnana Yogaswami said, “happiness and sorrow are twins, let them come and go like clouds.” Even as the country is mourning Machakos Senator Boniface Kabaka and former minister Joe Nyaga, funny moments crippled in.
Senators led by Speaker Ken Lusaka on Friday trickled at the Lee Funeral Home, where the body of their colleague is lying.
Senator Kabaka died while receiving treatment at the Nairobi Hospital, a week after he was admitted at the hospital’s intensive care unit.
Taking keen interest on a shirt Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja had put on, Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina posted Sakaja’s photo on Twitter.
In a bid to liken Sakaja’s ‘new-found’ love for locally made designer shirts just like President Uhuru Kenyatta, he wrote “Naona umeanza Kufuata kwa Makini!” Only this time, Ledama breathed a sigh of relief because his shirt does not resemble seat couches, “WAMASHATI at least si ya Sofa!”
When Uhuru was making his 11th presidential address on COVID-19 pandemic in August, Kenyans trolled him for putting on a shirt that had a striking resemblance with pillowcases.
But in a quick classic rejoinder, Senator Sakaja responded by highlighting Ledama’s new sense of fashion. He wears his traditional Maasai attire to Parliament, and yesterday was not an exemption.
“Sawa WAMASHUKA. Glad you can afford a smile as we remember and thank God for the life of our departed brother,” responded the youthful senator.
