Kandara Constituency MP and fierce DP Ruto’s ally, Alice Muthoni Wahome met the wrath of Kenyans on social media after calling President Uhuru Kenyatta a snake, using her official Twitter handle.
She tweeted, “Mtoto wa Nyoka ni Nyoka. We had forgotten”. When translated it means a child of a snake is a snake.
Mtoto wa Nyoka ni Nyoka. We had forgotten.

This was her alluding to the political witch hunt that has been on going in the ruling party Jubilee.
Angry Kenyans on Twitter did not take her remarks well, considering she has been captured on camera harassing an IEBC official before.

Among the first respondents was Hon. Irungu Kang’ata, “Lazima mtashika adabu hadi mheshimu president”, he wrote.

Translated to you will be disciplined until you respect the president.
Other Kenyans were more brutal in their response.
@ItsTitus wrote, “May the Good Lord above restore your memory, the short term memory you’re experiencing is a resultant effect of too much power you exuberated in your Joseph Kony look-alike General attire. You forgot power is transient and wembe ni ule ule”.
So saa hii nani ako na ujinga sana 🤣🤣🤣.

You roughed up a returning officer to please mtoto wa nyoka. You came out in military camouflage to please mtoto wa nyoka. These were silly things to do. You should not complain when you are treated like the silly person you are.@I_am_Gathoni @DavidNdii @alaminkimathi

@petergathua64, “The handouts you get is blood money and it will haunt you and your generations for ever, how can you forget how this many have done to our brothers from yk 92 upto and including 2007/2008? And now is your second bank Account”.
When you guys started insulting your party leader what did you expect? You expected him to just seat and watch as you misbehave?

@ma_shete, “Oyaa, IF YOU WORK FOR A MAN, SPEAK WELL & STAND BY THE INSTITUTION HE REPRESENTS. If you must growl, condemn & eternally find fault – RESIGN but as long as you are part of the institution, DO NOT CONDEMN IT! If you do, the first high wind that comes along will blow you away”.
Respect your party leader! You know you are alleged to misappropriate trust funds of Mbiyu Koinange leaving the children in jeopardy??????!!! When your time comes your colleagues and you will face the law. Kenya needs to drain such old con lawyers and leaders 🚮

Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika have already lost their majority and minority whip roles respectively.
Other leaders who are targeted in the next ousters are reported to be Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki, Naitonal Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and the house’s Majority Whip Benjamin Washiali.
