Kimili MP Didmus Barasa shocked many Kenyans as he decided to show up in an event on barefooted and wearing uniform that was greatly torn.

This took place during the official launch of classrooms at Daraja Mungu Primary School whose construction was sponsored by the CDF fund.

In defense of his dressing, Didmus Barasa argued that he was doing so to highlight the plight of many poor Kenyan students who have to survive the cold weather every morning to attend school.

He also stated that it was not something new to him as it is something that he has undergone personally stressing that he comes from a very humble background.

“In solidarity with the young ones who brave the cold weather every morning to go to school, I donned full school uniform and walked bare feet as a reminder of where I have come from,” stated Barasa.

He took the opportunity to encourage all the students that their poor backgrounds should not be a hindrance to achieving their dreams in life.

“My message of hope to the enthusiastic learners: ‘The fact that today you go to school on an empty stomach and bare feet should not kill your dream of becoming president one day,” MP Barasa added.

Here are some of the comments;

Abongu Peter :
“So instead of inspiring the poor, they are struggling to preserve poverty in the country. Shameless misleaders just” 

Eric Ondiege : “What a shame. Glorifying poverty. Keep those pants your wish may come true!! Mungu halali
