Yesterday, a Twitter user shared a video showing Umoja 1 Member of County Assembly Mark Mugambi aka Ronaldo or Roro touting like a simple man on a Umoinner Sacco bus.
The video was linked and shared by Umoja News where it was retweeted by Matatu alert service Ma3Route to its over a million audience.
That is when the trouble began; few had little praise for the Public Relations stunt by the first time MCA.
The video shows Roro as he is fondly referred to by youths in his ward hanging dangerously from the door of a matatu, then collecting fare from commuters.
Ma3Route later deleted the video for an unknown reason. What do you think happened?
Many Twitter users associated the stunt with seeking sympathy votes for 2022 General Elections.
