Kenyan MPs are set to join the Jerusalema Challenge next Wednesday when they will shoot their own version .
Majority Leader Amos Kimunya urged MPs to turn up in large numbers not only for the shoot on Wednesday but also for practice on Monday and Tuesday.
“The jig will be led by the Speaker himself so I encourage you to come out in larger numbers; it will also be an opportunity for you to exercise,” Kimunya told the MPs.
Kimunya stated that Mps taking part in the challenge is aimed to showcase the work done by Parliament and show solidarity with those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo explained that it has become a theme song for the COVID-19 pandemic and exemplifies peace in diversity.
Nominated MP David Ole Sankok said he has practiced enough times and he was ready for the dance.
“We were practising today (Thursday), we really did dance and I am sure I have reduced some weight….and even persons with disability are encouraged to dance because I was dancing with my crutches, I am sure if you were there you would have enjoyed, so I also encourage you when we will be dancing dance alongside me because I will teach you some important moves,” Sankok quipped.
On the other hand Emuhaya MP Omboka Milemba seemed to be clueless about the challenge.
“I wanted to ask that the leader could elaborate because I and maybe a few of us don’t know what this thing is, I don’t know whether it’s a challenge show because some of us could also be talented and we want to be part of it and show our challenge,” Milemba posed.
