Talk Ruto funding tangatanga to heckle,stone Uhuru,Raila during Central tour

Published

on

Plans to have President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition chief Raila Odinga make a joint visit in Central Kenya have been repeatedly put on hold  after it emerged that a group of Tangatanga politicians were out to embarrass the two during the tour.

Waititu

Security reports indicated that the Ruto allied politicians were hell bent on creating  trouble during the visit in a well calculated move to portray that the handshake deal was not welcomed at the President’s backyard.

Quick recommendations were made  on how to neutralize  deputy president William Ruto’s allies in Central  and top on the list was to have their security details axed.

The move is already causing jittery between President Kenyatta and his deputy Ruto who have been openly in a strained relationship.

Pundits indicated that the move to withdraw security details was just  a highlight of impending havoc the President is likely to crack on those  perceived to be frustrating his legacy agendas.

Ruto

The first casualties are Kiambu governor Ferdinard Waititu, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika and Bahati MP Kimani Ngunnjiri.

Presidential order to have their security withdrawn also comes days after it was reported that the head of state was rapidly losing his backyard support to the deputy president Ruto.

Weekly Citizen has established that the Presidential order has sent other Tangatanga members into panic mode.

Why Uhuru has gone into hiding? – Weekly Citizen

Published

on


President Uhuru Kenyatta sneaked back into the country from Mauritius two days ago and retreated to a hide out to fine-tune a major government reorganisation that will see corrupt official sent packing, we can now report.

Sources revealed that the President opted to jet back into the country announced, even without the knowledge of his Deputy William Ruto.

The last time Kenyans heard of the President is four days ago when he addressed Mauritius investors accompanied by the country’s Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth.

Uhuru left for Mauritius on April 9 and upon arrival paid a courtesy call on the Acting President of Mauritius Paramasivum Pillay Vyapoory at State House, Le Reduit.

He was accompanied by Cabinet Secretaries Monica Juma (Foreign Affairs) and Prof George Magoha (Education) among other senior government officials.

On a state visit to Port Louis, President Uhuru Kenyatta convinced the Mauritian government to lift the ban on avocados and other produce from Kenya.

On Monday, queries were raised after the President skipped the fourth annual Legislative Summit in Kisumu.

He was expected to give a keynote address, award national honours to county assembly speakers and launch the global champion for youth agenda.

The Head of State was scheduled to open the event at 10am. Nobody represented or read his speech.

More than 4,000 delegates attended the summit that brought together senators, MCAs from the 47 county assemblies and partners at the Grand Royal Swiss Hotel from April 15 to 18.

Kisumu residents expected the President to address the progress of devolution, the handshake, development and his fight against corruption.

Three weeks ago, the President’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were suddenly deactivated shortly after he posted a tweet on corruption.

Speaking on the deactivation, Chief of Staff Office of The President, Nzioka Waitu said the President’s accounts had temporarily suspended and necessary remedial measures were being undertaken.

“On account of unauthorised access to the official social media handles of H.E the President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta. All official social media handles for the President have been temporarily suspended to allow for the necessary remedial measures to be undertaken,” the Chief of Staff said.
