Things went south quickly when she revealed she had spent Sh50 million to be elected. This she did while responding to a Twitter user who had criticised her for seeking treatment abroad as the health system in the country continues to deteriorate.
Economist David Ndii and KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua have come at Passaris rescue from Kenyans on Twitter.
The Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) boss Dr Mutua suggested there are better ways to demand for better health care.
You know that we are a sick society when people attack @EstherPassaris for posting about her surgery in India. Listen, while we need universal health care, hating on leaders and posting bile does not improve the situation. There're better ways of pushing for better policy.

On his part, political strategist and economist David Ndii posted this.
Why are you so mean? Esther had two back surgeries in Kenya last year. Are you suggesting people in public life should sacrifice their wellbeing for political correctness? https://t.co/txMlXEDCiHhttps://t.co/nqAlN4OlHT
