Thursday January 10, 2019 – President Uhuru Kenyatta rubbished
remarks made by some Central Kenya leaders who claimed that he has marginalized
Uhuru, who was launching Mama Ngina Drive Waterfront Project on Monday,
stated that he is the President of the entire nation and will continue to
launch projects all over.
The President further referred to those accusing him of ignoring the Mt.
Kenya region as “washenzi” adding that he will not be distracted in his drive
for nationwide development.
However, Uhuru’s choice of words seemed to have irked the entire Central
Kenya electorate who took to the social media to express fury at the Head of
Uhuru is said to have panicked over the backlash and is said to have
summoned Jubilee Party Secretary, Raphael Tuju, and told him to issue a Press
Conference on Thursday and tell Mt Kenya residents that he was refereeing to
MPs who were castigating him and not the electorate.
Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, and Bahati MP, Kimani Ngunjiri, are among
MPs who criticized the President saying he was launching projects in other
areas and neglecting Mt Kenya region.
