hursday, February 11, 2021 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has elicited mixed reactions following his wild remarks that he will not be handing over power to any corrupt individual.
The president sparked the reactions on both mainstream and social media after his hard hitting remarks that seemed to aim at his Deputy William Ruto.
Just like Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe always puts it, Uhuru for the first time assured Kenyans that he will only hand over power to a safer person and not a thief. He added that it would be wrong for him to leave the country into hands that may cause pain and anguish to innocent citizens.
“Najua nitaenda nyumbani next year, lakini najikaza kuhakikisha sitawachia wakenya mtu atawanyanyasa na kuiba mali yao.. I will not refuse to hand over power to someone Kenyans have trusted,” said Uhuru loosely translating to:
(I know I will be going home in next year, but I am trying my level best to make sure I do not usher in someone who will oppress Kenyans).
His remarks, according to political analysts, were meant to tell his deputy that he should not expect good news anytime soon from the president.
Kenyans weighed into the matter some wondering if the president is the one who will appoint his successor into Statehouse or Kenyans will have to decide through the ballot.
Uhuru was speaking this to a roadside gathering in Nairobi on Wednesday February 10 where he made it clear that he was committed to ensuring the the country remains under honest hands.
