Kenyans treated Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria abnormally after he attempted to dismiss the handshake noting that Kenyans were conned by the initiative that birthed the BBI.
According to the lawmaker, the handshake and the BBI were meaningless as even before then, Kenyans were already on a path of natural healing.
To drive his point home, Kuria shared the screenshot of a post he made on Sunday August 13, 2017.
In the post, two men from donning campaign t-shirts from the rival Jubilee and ODM camps are seen shaking hands in a sign of reconciliation.
“Long before the handshake and BBI, Kenyans were on the path of natural healing. Till they were conned,” Kuria wrote.
Netizens however had a different opinion on who really conned Kenyans as captured in their fiery comments sampled below.
Nancy Muthoni: Who con Kenyans if not all mpigs
Njenga Kimotho: You trying so hard to discredit everything uhuru did….
1. Do you rem u named a certain day ‘machozi tuesday’?
2. Do you rem advising the government to invest in more teargas?
3. Do rem the day you were passing security laws in parliament how you mocked others?
4. Do you rem calling a certain group militia just because they were not singing your tune? Amazing you want the same group to sing you hustler nonsense.
The list is endless. Is the above the country you’d have wished? You just wanted the status quo to continue for selfish interests. UK opened his eyes n knew that was not the way to go for a country. It’s your turn, please baby cry
Samuel Wahindi: Kuria u r very funny…you behave as if Ruto and UDA are God sent and as if they hv never held any elective post in Kenya…the bottom top approach you are talking about should be already in place in the very posts you hold today…May God help my fellow Kenyans to remember this…any politician works hard for his own interest…Ruto has been a Dp…Kenyas debt did not come to nine trillion after handshake…you guys just maintained “table manners then”…never talked when eating…
Wangai Peter: Your are wrong Sir, the real healing is how you were walking in different lodgings in Kisumu during Madaraka weekend without anyone bothering you.
Godfrey Angulienya: All evils that took place in this country 2013- 2017 you are part of it. You can’t run a way from it. We may forgive you as Kenyans but we shall never forget.
Prince Clifford Singah: You are one of the people that have vowed to ensure that Kenya will never move forward. The words you bring out of your mind are venom meant to poison some group against another. You guys are not leaders but people benefit out of tribal differences, hatred, and violence.
Gideon Ngugi: 100 years later after this picture was taken, a certain man managed to con kenyans and made sure that 2 dams would fit into his pocket… miraculously, they actually fitted.. something that had not been seen before
