‘Why are you angry at how I spend my money?’ – Sakaja defends flying to Kisumu on a chopper



Johnson Sakaja, the governor of Nairobi, received flak after using a helicopter to arrive to the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium in Kisumu.

Sakaja traveled to Kisumu to take part in the Kenya Inter-County Sports and Cultural Association (KICOSCA) Games, where Nairobi County won the championship as the nation’s top squad.

“Congratulations Team Nairobi for emerging ovverall best team at Kenya Inter-County Sports and Cultural Association (KICOSCA) Games held in Kisumu County. I’m extremely proud of you all! Siku Zote 👊 👊. Thank you H.E @AnyangNyongo for being such a gracious host,” Sakaja tweeted.

A section of Kenyans on social media slammed Sakaja for flying to Kisumu on a chopper, with some claiming he was using public money to fund his trip.

Political analyst Herman Manyora was among those who criticised Sakaja.

“How will he show us that he’s a big man? And show the world how stupid we are,” Manyora tweeted while reacting to another tweep castigating Sakaja.
