Kenyans react as Babu Owino names his two goats 'Raila and Uhuru'

Babu was gifted the two goats for teaching students online

MP Babu Owino gifted two goats by a delegation from the Maasai Community

On Monday, Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino was gifted two goats by a delegation from the Maasai Community that visited him at Parliament buildings for his exemplary work of teaching students via his Online classes.

What caught the attention of many Kenyans was the legislator's decision to name the two goats ‘Raila and Uhuru’.

A section, felt that it was not right for him to liken goats to such influential people in the Country, while others argued that naming them ‘Raila and Uhuru’ meant that he will take good care of the goats because their names represent people he looks up to.

Babu Gifted

“Today at Parliament, I received a delegation from the Maasai community who gifted me with two goats 🐐 🐐 for the good job we have been doing by teaching the Kenyan children. I named one goat Raila and the other Uhuru,” wrote Babu Owino.

For months now, Owino has been taking students through revision of several subjects via his social media pages, basing on the fact that Schools were closed to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
