I urge Uhuru to have a handshake with Ruto : Waiguru

Waiguru has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to mend his relationship with Deputy President William Ruto before he retires from office.

Speaking in Kirinyaga County on Tuesday, Waiguru who is seeking to defend her seat at the August polls under a UDA ticket, alluded that President Kenyatta owes the DP since he played an integral role in getting the Head-of-State into State House.

According to Waiguru, should the Head of State fail to do this, Mt. Kenya residents who she says are firmly behind DP Ruto’s presidential bid will abandon President Kenyatta once his term expires in August.

“Sisi tunakuomba kwa heshima, miezi nne ambayo imebaki, tafadhali fanya handshake na William Ruto ndio hawa watu wasikuwe pande moja na wewe usikuwe upande mwingine ukienda nyumbani kwa sababu hautafuti kiti. Tena tunakuomba umsalimie ndio uende nyumbani na heshima yako,” Waiguru said.

Waiguru went on to advise President Kenyatta that he is better off cutting ties with certain members of his camp who are allegedly misguiding him and influencing his decision making.

“Sisi tunakuomba mheshimiwa Rais hawa watu ambao wamekuzingira nakuomba uwabadilishe kwa sababu hao ndio wanakupoteza njia. Kukuambia uwekele William Samoei Ruto hizo maneno ndio achukiwe na watu wa Mt. Kenya,” she said.

The Kirinyaga governor likewise stated that Kenyatta should leave DP Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga to battle it out in the race to State House without any influence from the Head-of-State.

Kirinyaga residents, Waiguru added, will firmly back DP Ruto despite what is being suggested by his competitors.

“Ulikuwa umesema miaka kumi yako na kumi ya Ruto kwa hivyo tunakuomba kwa heshima. Fanya handshake alafu utoke hapo, umwache William Ruto amenyane na huyu mzee wa Azimio,” she added.

Breaking : High Court Declares Huduma NAMBA Roll Out Invalid

The High Court has declared Huduma Namba inavlid after ruling that the law wasn’t followed in its roll-out.

Justice Jairus Ngaah ruled on Thursday, October 14, that the Government failed to conduct data impact assessment before rolling out the cards in November last year, contravening the Constitution in the process.

Law scholar Yash Pal Ghai and Katiba Institute had, in November 2020, challenged the roll-out of the cards over lack of guarantee against theft or misuse of Kenyans’ personal information.

The lobby group argued that the Government failed to subject the fresh registration of Kenyans to data protection impact assessment (DPIA), a requirement under the law.

The High Court has quashed the decision by the state to roll out Huduma Namba cards, ruling that it was illegal.

“An order is hereby issued to bring into this honourable court to quash the government decision of November 18 2020 to roll out Huduma cards for being ultra vires of the data protection act 2019,” the court ruled

BACKLASH : Kenyans React After President Uhuru Congratulates Museveni For WIN

It didn’t go down well on Sunday morning  when Kenyans read the congratulatory message by President Uhuru  for probably supporting  Museveni who is out of favor.

Kenyatta-and-Museveni post

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday applauded President Museveni for his re-election in what he described as respectable choice from Kenyans and reiterated the friendship that Kenya holds with Uganda.

With EU having stated the elections were not free and fair and the strongest contender Kizza Besigye being under House Arrest, Kenyans on social media did not approve the message as they felt that it was too early to send such a message at a moment when a number of Ugandans are grieving.

Kizza Besigye who lost the election to President Museveni for the fourth time

I am very pleased to congratulate His Excellency President Yoweri Museveni on his re-election as President of the Republic of Uganda. The people of Uganda have spoken, and they have spoken very clearly. We respect their choice of President Museveni.

Kenya values its close friendship with Uganda. That friendship is founded on a common history, a common culture, and common interests. In years past, we have worked closely together for the prosperity and freedom of our nations. We look forward to continuing the work that both our nations have already done, together and in concert with the East African Community, the African Union, and IGAD.

We look forward, too, to even closer integration.
I wish President Museveni every success as he serves his nation for another term. He and Uganda can count on my support, and my friendship, as well as that of their brothers and sisters in Kenya. President Uhuru stated through a press release

The comments that followed included.

Wanyama Evan May the whole world understand that this is a personal statement from uhuru and does not in any way represent the view of Kenyans.No sane mind can talk positive about an open dishonest election marred with irregularities and intimidation of opponents like uganda’s.

Kapia Frankline Abdallah I regret on behalf of people of Kenya.The views Kenyatta has expressed here are personal and do not reflect wishes of kenyans.We stand with our Brothers in Uganda this trying moments of their democracy

Peetah Mzito Museveni is a dictator who rules and commands everything in Uganda, he oppressed the opposition so that he could retain power by the bullet. This victory is only his, dictatorship and greed for power is what will ruin Africa.

Kenn Stiffler I wish our president could just inbox him the congratulatory message instead of dragging us all in it.

Harold Harold Sorry Mr president you can not puport to speak for me,as a matter of fact am not party to this statement..

NO MONEY TO PAY : President Uhuru Urges Teachers To Reconsider Their Position On Strike

H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta through a state address on Sunday evening urged teachers to reconsider their position on the ongoing strike. The President stated that the child’s interest should be put first looking at the public wage bill is way higher than the one paid out for the previous year.


The teachers strike has been ongoing for the past 3 weeks with millions of students in both primary and secondary school being left in a position of staying at home.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Government is about service. I urge all teachers as parents, as public servants, and as Kenyans to reconsider their position on this matter, and to resume their duties, in the interests of our children.

Let me also encourage teachers and their unions to represent themselves honestly to those who pay their wages. Let us deal sincerely with each other, because only then will we find lasting solutions to the challenges that face us,” President Uhuru stated. 


The President also laid out the facts of increase in the wage bill and gave out the option of either increasing taxes or stopping developments programs if teachers were to be paid.

“The fact of the matter is that to pay this award, we would have to raise VAT from 16% to 22%, OR borrow more money OR suspend critical development programs and essential services in health, in education and in security. Raising taxes, borrowing more money or cutting back on development programs will raise the cost of living, slow down our economy, and increase unemployment and poverty. None of these options is tenable. Our country must live within its means,” the President stated. 

Kenyans on their part were left hanging on what the next position will be with Knut Secretary General Wilson Sossion saying that they have to respect the President’s opinion but added that they will follow the court order.

“I’m ready 4 a 50% salary cut inorder to pay our teachers.I’ll file a motion in Senate 4 50% salary cut 4 Senators&other highly paid officers,” Mike Sonko through a tweet said that he will be willing to take a pay cut of 50% to help pay the teachers.

Nearly 14 million students were sent home on Friday as the government and unions dug in in the stalemate over a pay increase. But whereas the salary strike is only affecting public schools, the closure will includes private institutions.

This is the first time in the history of Kenya’s education sector for the government to take such a drastic action.
