See Kenyans open contempt for Uhuru on social media posts

Published

on

If President Uhuru Kenyatta takes time off his long transatlantic flight back home to sample the comments on his social media posts for the last one week, he will be in for a rude shock.

In span of a year when love dotted his posts, tables have turned for the man who swept to power in 2013 through, among other strategies, capturing the imaginations of voting base through strategic imaging and messaging.

All it took was for him to sign the Finance Bill, 2018 allowing 8 per cent tax on fuel products for Kenyans to descend on him.

For the last one week he has been in New York, all his postings have been met with unprecedented vitriol from Kenyans who cursed, insulted and dismissed him with contempt.

So much has the pressure been that the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) had to rest the UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) hashtag for a while to ward off unrelenting Kenyans. When he met top Canadian captains of industry on Thursday and posted that they had assured him of “continued appetite to invest in Kenya” he walked right into the trap of Kenyans who are now averse to such terms as appetite.

Come and sign the weed bill Asap. We need to feel high just like the executive and legislature feels when passing tax laws. We demand equity in weed consumption,” Timothy Mutura retorted.

Javan Lewis followed him up: “The only thing I have gained so far under your presidency is being the first to comment without reading your long sentences.”

To Kenyatta, the deal on 100,000 affordable houses signed on Wednesday was such a big deal. But not to Kenyans seething at increased taxation and runway corruption depleting the taxes collected. When he posted the news, he was met with an outpouring of fury:

Please take a break from updating us on this projects no body is interested in them just come and sign the marijuana bill,” Mwangi Muriithi said as others asked him to ask Majority Leader Aden Duale lobby for the doggone bill.

Deliver to who? Who asked for the houses? Have Kenyans been living on trees? Another one quipped.

Wewewewe! You didn’t represent me, when I remember the price of kerosene is the same as of diesel as if we will be driving our stoves and korobois to work,” Paul Maina said.

Kenyans had even begun to study the patterns of the posts: “So you have decided to be posting late night to avoid the wrath of Kenyans?? come also ascent to weed bill, we need to be under some influence to survive in Kenya,” Elisha Kiptoo said.

Pitah Waweru regretted “1001” times for “waking up that early to vote Kenyatta: “For the grandmothers I carried with my own car to polling station, please forgive me,” he added.

I have not left my wife: Ex-president Jakaya Kikwete

Published

on

Former Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete has denied allegations that he has parted way with his wife Salma. Addressing a Chama Cha Mapenduzi (CCM) rally in Arusha on September 9 ahead of the October 28 General Elections, Mr Kiwete sought to put to rest the rumours propagated on social media.

“Should I, or should I not say?” Mr Kikwete posed to the crowd which cheered him on.

“I’ve heard that people were saying that ‘this lady has been dumped and that’s why she wants to become a Member of Parliament’. Do you want to take my wife from me? I have not left her,” said a laughing Mr Kiwete.

Making history

Mama Salma, as she’s popularly referred to by Tanzanians made history in 2017 after becoming the first former first lady to become MP after being nominated by President John Magufuli. Mrs Kikwete’s nomination was, however, viewed as a move to reach out to politicians with a big influence within CCM, as they were seen to be drifting away from the president.

After Mr Kikwete stepped down in 2015 after serving 10 years as president as per the constitution limit, Mrs Kikwete vigorously campaigned for Mr Bernard Membe, a close family friend to clinch the CCM seat and succeed her husband.

Soon after clinching the seat, rumours started swirling that President Magufuli’s crackdown on tax evasion at the Port of Dar es Salaam put him at odds with the Kikwete family as firms they were in business with were under investigation.

However, Mr Kikwete and President Magufuli both dismissed the allegations as a mudslinging campaign.

Women empowerment

During her tenure as First Lady, Mama Salma was hailed for being at the forefront of empowering women. She founded the Wanawake na Maendeleo (Wama), a non-profit dealing with women empowerment. She also founded Wama Secondary School, an institution that enrols bright but disadvantaged girls.
