Rapper and radio presenter Nonini is angry with Igembe South legislator, not because of his efforts to increase MPs salaries, but due to some remarks he made.
Apparently, Linturi called Isaac Mwaura, an MP with albinism, a cowboy because he likes wearing a hat. Nonini who has been helping persons suffering from this condition, in the purchase of sunscreens through the Colour Kwa Face campaign.
The artiste is demanding an apology from the MP.
This was his post of Facebook yesterday.
Mithika Linturi Mp mzima wa Igembe South Constituency calls Isaac Mwaura the nominated ODM MP a cowboy because he is wearing a hat, the Speaker looks on.
Remember that Isaac suffers from albinism and the hat is meant to shield him from intense light.
#SomeOneTellLinturi Albinism is a condition characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes due to absence or defect of an enzyme involved in the production of melanin. Thus, the most critical care of people living with albinism is to protect their skin against direct sunlight. Thus, during the day, they have to wear hats,(Hence Isaac Mwaura’s hat) sunglasses and, most importantly, apply sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF).
Shame On Linturi……Speaker should not allow this kind of ignorant behavior in the house.
Linturi should offer a private and public apology to Mweshimiwa Isaac Mwaura!
