Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika’s attempt to shame president Uhuru Kenyatta for violating government rules backfired badly after netizens read through the malice in her statement and served her a few truths.
This is after the Nakuru Senator took to social media accusing the president of violating the regulations he (the President) announced in response to a surge in Covid-19 cases in the country when he hosted leaders drawn from the Maa community yesterday.
“So Uhuru bans all political meetings and public gatherings of whatever nature in the 5 counties (Nairobi included). Then hosts a political gathering and posts it on his official page for all to see?” Kihika asked.
The leaders who included elders, women and youth representatives were led by Environment CS Keriako Tobiko, Devolution PS Charles Sunkuli, his Planning counterpart Saitoti Torome and Narok North MP Moitalel Ole Kenta.
Photos shared afterwards clearly showed all participants adhering to all Covid-19 prevention protocols.
Participants were seen wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
Netizens were quick to read through her lies and reminded her that her political boss, DP Ruto is known to break the same regulations at will, holding rallies attended by huge crowds and is often pictured in public without a mask.
Some reminded her that she only has a problem when Uhuru holds a meeting and see no problem when politicians troop to Sugai or DP Ruto’s Karen home.
Other reminded her that being the president, there must have been a good reason for the president to hold the meeting.
Discussions at the meeting focused on issues affecting the progress of the Maa Community among them its rich culture.
