Former IEBC Commissioner Dr. Roselyn Akombe Tackles Uhuru with Embarrassing Midnight Message, Setting Social Media Ablaze

Former IEBC Commissioner Dr. Roselyn Akombe tackled President Uhuru Kenyatta with a midnight post that sent tongues wagging.

Taking to social media, Akombe opined that those who grow up with a silver spoon in their mouths do not understand no.

“I guess when you grow up with a silver spoon in your mouth, you don’t understand what NO means. Waah!” Akombe wrote.

Comments came in thick and fast with netizens giving their take, supporting and rebuking Akombe in equal measure.

Edith Slay Wanyama: Is being born and brought up in a poor background or poverty an assurance of good leadership? Morals and leadership skills goes beyond that.

William K. Elphas: What did Uhuru Kenyatta ever do to you?

Kimonda: Akombe, Miguna and Makau Mutua are barking on twitter. Just echoes but nothing tangible. Why not tweet about your countries?

Jackie Waffs: My sister sahi tuko at another level. Wacha development kidogo ikuje nyanza. We can’t politic milele. How is your country? Sometimes be talking of that.

Collins Peter Ouma: The President voiced his disagreeing with a judgement made by the courts, last I checked that is part of a democratic discourse in any country. Why this faulty push to imply Judiciary is beyond critique of the three branches of Government.

Opanja: So you’ll elect Ruto to teach him a lesson

The remarks came just hours after the head of state used the Madaraka Day celebrations to hit out at the judiciary in a speech that left DP Ruto’s Tanga Tanga brigade protesting.

“From nullification of a presidential election in 2017 to an attempt to stop the will of the people as expressed through BBI, the Judiciary has tested our constitutional limits, but not broken them.

“We must follow the Rule of Law and obey the decisions of the courts but the sovereign and supreme voice of the People of Kenya must also be followed. And that is why our National Conversation today must focus on the Burden of Choice.

“Citizens are required to exercise their will and shoulder the burden of their choices, and so should our independent institutions. The field of independence has been expanded in the Judiciary, and so the field of their responsibility should respond to the summons of nationhood. Their decisions should also be accompanied by a burden of choice. This is what the national conversation should ponder”. Said Uhuru.
