Consumers Federation of Kenya who termed the trip as a rip-off.

“NO DIFFERENCE with the scandals they have been "investigating" ~ 20 MPs fly to Russia to enjoy the World Cup ~ Who will save Kenyans from #RipoffKenya? Solai community in Nakuru still reeling in pain of lost livelihoods as Sen. Millicent Omanga and others take selfies in Moscow,” posted COFEK.
