A video of one of possibly the most expensive Harambee in Kenyan history has shocked social media users with many questioning how politicians are able to make immense contributions despite their relatively small salaries.
The video shared by Social Media activist Robert Alai shows Narok Governor Samuel Tunai presiding over a Church fundraiser at an undisclosed diocese in his county.
Tunai calls on the bishop to receive the donations from political leaders – it is here that the drama starts.
At first, it sounds as a slip of the tongue when Tunai announces President Uhuru Kenyatta had donated Sh34.5 Million – but the excited governor lifts the seemingly heavy sack containing the money and from the shake in his hands, it is clear that he was not dreaming.
The second donation was from Deputy President William Ruto, and he too, is not left behind as he matches the President’s donation to the last cent – another heavy sack containing Sh34.5 Million is lifted to the bewildered congregation.
Tunai then announces his ‘humble’ contribution of Sh6.8 Million while Uasin Gishu governor Jackson Mandago gives Sh3.4 Million.
Last to contribute is Ruto’s Personal Assistant Farouk Kibet who contributes Sh3.4 Million – perhaps the clearest proof that in Kenya wealth can be transmitted through osmosis.
