A few hours after reports emerged indicating former Deputy speaker of the National Assembly Farah Maalim vying for the position of Garissa township MP which is currently held by Majority leader Aden Duale, supporters of the two leaders as well as those from their respective parties have taken to twitter to showcase why each was the better option through the hashtags #TeamFarahMaalim and #TeamDuale
The report is attributed to the spokesman of the opposition party ODM who said Farah was already on the ground to launch his bid.
Here is how the twitter war unfolded:
Eti punda ameanguka na mzigo baada ya kumwona Farasi mpya Garissa. Hii Ndio dobe dobeza sasa.
