Rachael Shebesh, the current Nairobi Woman Representative for Nairobi County has been unwell and hospitalized, which explains her absence on the political scene in the last few days.
The Jubilee Party member has been nursing a leg injury and actually, she was presented with her nomination certificate while still in her hospital bed.
Rachel Shebesh shared a photo while receiving her nomination, with a warm message that read;
Today I received my Jubilee Certificate in Nairobi Hospital where I am recuperating from a leg injury. Thank you Nairobians for your continued support
This is when her fans finally knew what was keeping the ‘Mama Wa Nai’ away from the political activities, which are at their peak.
Rachel Shebesh is set to go head to head with Esther Passaris aka Mama Taa, who is also an aspirant for the Nairobi Women Rep chair in this year’s election.
Despite their varied opinion and parties, Esther Passaris showed her mature side as she took upon herself to visit the ailing politician, putting aside all political rivalry.
Esther Passaris shared photos with Rachel Shebesh on her hospital bed, proving that politics cannot come in between true friendship and girl power.
The ODM party nominee put the photo as they hugged and smiled while looking at the camera, with a sweet caption that read;
Earlier this afternoon, I paid a courtesy visit to Hon. Shebesh who is recuperating. My supporters and I wish you a full recovery.
This gesture attracted a lot of attention from Kenyans, who took to social media to congratulate Esther Passaris on her political maturity and her sense of responsibility.
She even explained why she brought her Chevra after a fan asked: “Yes. It’s what she craved. Indian sweet chevra. I like taking patients what they desire not the norm- fruits, flowers, lucozade, chocolate.”
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto also visited Rachel Shebesh in the hospital, which got her by surprising, putting a smile on her face: “Your kindness cannot be measured or expressed in words. You visited me by my bedside. What a pleasant surprise!”
