Members of the legislature and the parliament staff on Wednesday took part in the famous Jerusalema dance challenge.
“We took this challenge to show Kenyans that there is peace in diversity, because we are drawn from different political parties and different regions,” Millie Odhiambo, Suba North MP, revealed.
In the video that has been making rounds on social media, the legislators are seen dancing to Jerusalem song by Master KG adorned in Kenyan flag t-shirts.
MPs David Sankok, John Kiarie, Esther Passaris joined fellow legislators in doing the famous dance to te hit song.
Their video has however rubbed many Kenyans the wrong way.
Very sad that this is a priority while school children sit on the concrete floor in Trans Nzioka – wake up Kenya

I don't see the fun of this, our Mpigs work is to fleece Kenyans by misusing their taxes, I can't imagine they have the strength and energy to dance when we have poor health care, bad roads, insecurity everywhere and unemployment at it's worst?

These mps should now launch the #cautiontheyouth challenge after we were hard hit by covid and also launch #stopcorruption challenge in that same parliament and we will credit them for that but not this bullshit challenge they call jerusalema and don't get the moves right

Excellent. On the other side of the coin when you get sick you go overseas to seek medical attention, no desks at school, etc…. come 2022 it is us ordinary Citizen who will be dancing like that in the voting booth…
