#JerusalemaChallenge by Politicians evoke mixed feelings from KOT

Kenyans On Twitter(KOT) on Friday, 9th October 2020 woke up to the news that their politicians are on the verge of releasing their own Jerusalema Challenge. 

Leader of Majority Amos Kimunya said it was necessary for the legislators to be part of the movement calling for diversity in times of distress.

“The jig will be led by the Speaker himself so I encourage you to come out in larger numbers; it will also be an opportunity for you to exercise,” Kimunya told the MPs.
