The Jubilee party’s Tanga Tanga faction, which is affiliated to Deputy President William Ruto, is now claiming the government is ‘victimizing’ them.
Kenyans on the other hand have shown no sympathy to these ‘victims’, reminding them that just a few years ago they were praising the same government for the political privileges they enjoyed.
On social media, Kenyans have targeted Majority Leader of the Senate Kipchumba Murkomen and Dennis Itumbi who tweeted about their colleagues’ ‘mistreatment’.
Their outcry comes in the wake of Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro’s tribulations which led to his arrest on Monday evening.
I am actually surprised that @NdindiNyoro has been arrested. I hope the @IG_NPS remembers that power is transient and that we are merely temporary trustees in the offices bestowed upon us to serve and not to oppress others. I hope the @ODPP_KE will stand up to be counted!

Itumbi on his part wrote:
Approach to law & Order…@RailaOdinga illegally swears himself in as President. – Handed security & Chase Cars@NdindiNyoro – Attends church and contributes 200k while demanding observance of political protocol -Arrest him!
Justice for the rich.
Justice for the Hustler.

While Nyoro has since been released by the police, on social media Kenyans were unapologetic.
Selective amnesia is a bad decease Wakili. How many have been arrested before this alleged thug? You’re presumed innocent until proven guilty. Relax bro

Sasa the same gova inakohoa na wenyewe hawataki kuitika. They are only getting a drop of what they celebrated against NASA supporters and yet their cry is deafening

When the axe entered the forest,the trees said to each other,”Do not worry,the handle in that axe is one of us.”that’s @kipmurkomen,you didn’t stand up to be counted,when others were being oppressed.
Now tables have turned,you want us to see you as a human rights defender?

if you always stood up and advocated for the rule of law today you wouldn’t have tweeted this. You, Ndindi and tangatanga affiliates failed our country back then.
