The Kenyanpost news

ODM party leader Raila Odinga  and Prominent business person Chris Kirubi joined Gor Mahia for the viral Jerusalema dance challenge on Wednesday afternoon.

"Nani kama Baba...At the Gor Mahia event this afternoon I let loose and shook a leg with the team," Raila revealed through his twitter account.

The dance, inspired by Master KG's hit track 'Jerusalema' featuring Nomcebo Zikode, has been trending for some time and various groups have tried the dance styles..

This came a day  after the team sealed a deal with the Two Rivers Development Limited management which will see Gor Mahia using the mall’s Sports District as their training grounds this season.

Raila used the opportunity to urge more corporate entities to support local sports teams, especially community clubs.

This comes hours after the National Assembly Majority and Minority leaders Amos Kimunya and John Mbadi led the House in the dance.

The MPs made a two-line queue along the corridors of the National Assembly as they cheered and made their own 'choreographed' dance moves.

The Majority leader said the Jerusalema challenge will showcase the work done by Parliament and show solidarity with those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We took this challenge to show Kenyans that there is peace in diversity, because we are drawn from different political parties and different regions,” Millie  Odhiambo started.

“Mr Speaker, I was there during the practice session this afternoon and we really did dance and I am sure I have reduced some weight. I would encourage persons with disabilities to dance because I was dancing with my crutches. Mr Speaker, I am sure if you were there you would have enjoyed it, so I also encourage you, Mr Speaker, when we will be dancing, I want you to dance alongside me because I will teach you some important moves,” Sankok quipped.
