Monday September 2, 2019-Baringo Senator, Gideon Moi, on Friday came under fierce criticism after his social media post backfired on him.
The senator posted a picture of him alongside Nairobi Senator, Johnson Sakaja, and Nyeri Senator, Ephraim Maina, explaining that they had traveled to Malaysia for an official trip.
"With fellow Senators Maina and Sakaja in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where members of the Senate Liaison Committee comprising of committee chairpersons are on an official visit," Gideon captioned on his Twitter.
However, his post did not please Kenyans who angrily tore into him claiming he abandoned his area residents, who were succumbing to Malaria and hunger.
On August 24, Citizen TV reported that four people died and over 100 others were admitted to hospital, after a malaria outbreak in Baringo County.
The deceased were two children and two adults from Kongor area.
Other affected areas are Kulol, Kaghat, Chesawach, Akoret, Kapau, Atirir, Chesotim, Lokis, Ng’aina, Korelach and Krese.
