Sauti Sol lead Vocalist Bien Aime Baraza has weighed in on the news of ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga flying to Dubai for Surgery.
Bein posed a rhetoric question at Kenyans, while comparing the gap that exits between the common Mwananchi and influential leaders who can fly outside the Country for specialized treatment any time.
Sharing the Front page of Daily Nation Newspaper Bien wrote;
“On the blue corner the rich man is in Dubai for surgery. On the red corner mwananchi will have to use local hospitals and morgue when Classism meets police brutality. Whose your money on?” posed Bien Aime.
Odinga in Dubai for Minor Surgery
Bien’s statement comes hours after Oburu Odinga who is the spokesman for the Odinga family confirmed that the former Prime Minister had flown to Dubai for a minor surgery.
Another user also echoed Bien’s sentiments saying, “esalimba_brian What else should we expect we voted for the wrong leaders and tolerate the impunity so accept whatever happens till 2022”

However, a section of his followers who commented on the post had contrary opinions, arguing that Odinga has the right to seek medical attention at a hospital of his choice.
shnnackk “@bienaimesol what is wrong with a man going to Dubai for treatment. Am sure if you were also very sick (God forbid) and had the means to go for surgery to another country you would have also done the same..it Is sad that our hospitals here are not the best but you should and that should be blamed on County governments and the national government.Always thank God for good health.Criticize the police brutality and even pray that God will help us”

The government (aka the president) collects your taxes, not rich men”
