Duale shames Flamboyant City Lawyer after controversial post

Bure Kabisa!

Kipkorir in a tweet wrote how the Somali community in the country were less than 300,000 but belonged to all Political Parties and had their own Parties but never allowed political differences to come between their faith, friendships, business and lobbying for big offices.

He compared the community to Qatar saying that Somalis punch above their weight and advised other tribes to learn from them.

Duale's response

The post prompted a swift response from the Garissa Township legislator who shamed the lawyer by giving him a historical background and significance of the Somali community.

"Wakili, Somalis are over 3m spread across the country occupy 3 counties, historically occupied critical positions in government, legislature and private sector, contribute to the economy . To wrap it all they occupy more than 65%of the Horn of Africa .bure Kabisa .fitina," Duale tweeted.

Kenyans reactions

Kipkorir's post generated a hot debate online with Kenyans airing out their views on the Somali community and their place in Kenya's political and economic scene.
