Kenyan singer turned politician Charles Njagua Kanyi, popularly known as Jaguar, has found himself at the receiving end of a fierce roasting from Akothee, a well-known Kenyan businesswoman and songstress. The reason? Jaguar had claimed that he was richer than Akothee, a statement that did not sit well with the fiery businesswoman.
In response to Jaguar’s claim, Akothee took to social media to set the record straight. She began by expressing her surprise at Jaguar’s wealth, wondering how he had managed to amass such wealth. She then went on to clarify that she was not in the same league as Jaguar, as his wealth was all from taxpayers’ money.
Akothee went on to explain that politicians like Jaguar should not be claiming to be richer than private individuals like herself, as their wealth was not earned through hard work or business acumen, but rather from the public purse. She added that even their business flight tickets and choppers are all paid for by the government, not their own money.
“I am not in your league, let me not hear any politician bragging with tax payers money. Those business flights and choppers are paid by the government not your personal money while people’s children can’t even afford school fess,” Akothee stated.
Akothee’s response was not just a defense of her own wealth, but a condemnation of the corrupt practices that have plagued Kenyan politics for decades. Her words struck a chord with many Kenyans who have grown tired of seeing their hard-earned tax money being squandered by corrupt politicians.
Jaguar has since been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism from Kenyans who are tired of politicians flaunting their ill-gotten wealth. Akothee’s response to Jaguar’s claim has served as a wake-up call to many Kenyans who have continued to demand more transparency and accountability from their elected officials.
