Peter Salasya, the member of parliament for Mumias East, has generated controversy online with his most recent tweet.
The politician is receiving anger for what online users are calling his "village mentality."
They strongly believe that this is bad for Salasya's reputation and for us as citizens in general since our leaders' antics are used to ridicule us when we engage in virtual warfare with other countries.
Salasya's breakthrough occurred when he posted a video of himself and his teammates competing in an eating contest as part of his team-building initiatives. You're probably wondering, what's the harm in that?
The trick is that the food-eating battle was not at all like anything you might expect.
Can you imagine that and to make matters worse, they were uncooked and had their feathers on and all that! (I asked around and I was told that people do shallow fry them) Like you could literally see them flapping trying to escape from the bucket as Salasya and his team grabbed at them in handfuls stuffing the insects in their mouths.
"As [a] team building strategy day with my team I brought them at home for termite competition where I won the game of eating termites 😅" wrote the first term MP sharing a video of their shenanigans online.
Netizens (just like I) found the video very far from amusing with some comments so vile they couldn't be published. They called for the politician to learn to be poised and proper.
Below are a few comments from Instagram users sharing their 2 cents on Peter's video;
