NASA leader Raila Odinga on Thursday shared on social media photos of Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze’s body lying in mortuary, provoking a massive backlash from Kenyans online.
Mr Odinga was accompanied by a host of NASA leaders when he had gone to the Lee Funeral Home to pay is last respects to the late lawmaker.
The former PM and his colleagues were photographed viewing the legislator’s body,which was covered from neck down.
Unfortunately,the photo also displayed Mr Nyenze’s face.
He shared the graphic photo on his social media handles, accompanied with his condolence message.
Nyenze succumbed to colon cancer on Wednesday after a resilient battle with the disease for close to a decade.
Here are some reactions from Kenyans;

@PurityKaran1 retorted; “If ur still supporting Nasa this is how ur photo will be circulated in the media, Shame.”
@gladysmungaii replied; “The account manager please this is wrong. Respect the dead a photo of Rao outside Lee morgue is enough but Nyenze??? I think you need to think through some stuff before posting. My two cents….”
