REVEALED: What REALLY happened to President UHURU KENYATTA in LONDON - First hand information


By Joe Adama

When President Uhuru Kenyatta finally writes, or authorizes the writing of, his memoirs, his first visit to Britain as Kenya’s Head of State and Government could well rate a chapter to itself.

Uhuru was in the UK to attend the Somalia Conference in London at the historic Lancaster House, venue of the Kenyan negotiations for the Independence Constitution more than 50 years ago.

His entourage included Attorney General Githu Muigai, Chief of the General Staff of the Kenya Defence Forces General Julius Karangi and Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary Mwangi Thuita.

However, UK’s first visit to the UK as President, as his fan base fondly referred to it on social media, will not form the happiest chapter of his memoirs in the fullness of time.

The tour was fraught with a bad press and subtle diplomatic snubs, not the least of which was the denial by Prime Minister David Cameron, his host, of a photo op.

Throughout his three days in London, Monday May 6 to Wednesday 8 , President Kenyatta and his entourage were constantly reminded of his status as an International Criminal Court indictee of crimes against humanity by the UK media and the international media based in London.

RELENTLESS REFERENCES TO ICC

The references were relentless. Every report of the President’s visit, before, during and after, in the multimedia North American, British and mainland European press was prefaced by mention of the President’s ICC status. TV news network Sky even went as far as headlining news of the visit on its website with the epithet 'Criminal President' in reference to Kenyatta.

And on his last day in London, the office of ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda itself announced that it was adding gunfire killings to the charges against President Kenyatta in the matter of the post-election mayhem in Naivasha in early 2008.

And then the Associated Press said this of President Kenyatta’s visit: “Britain, like the rest of the European Union and other Western powers, has a policy of only ‘essential contact’ with anyone charged by the ICC. A British government source said the invitation of Kenyatta to the Somalia conference was an example of essential contact.”

It was British High Commissioner to Kenya, Dr Christian Turner, who inserted the narrative that Britain does not deal with ICC indictees except when it is absolutely essential among the thinly veiled warnings to Kenyans against electing the Uhuru Kenyatta/William Ruto ticket. This week, Dr Turner travelled with President Kenyatta to London.

OF PHOTO OPS AND PROTOCOL SNUBS

When President Kenyatta finally met Prime Minister Cameron, it was on the sidelines of the Somalia Conference at Lancaster House, not Number 10 Downing Street.

As of Thursday morning, many Kenyans on social media were still wondering whether the meeting had indeed taken place, where and why there were no photos of it to be found anywhere online.

Cameron was, for instance, photographed shaking President Museveni’s hand warmly in an image posted online within minutes of the hand clasping. No such image of the Kenyan President and the British PM was to be found on the Net, not even from Kenya’s Presidential Press Service (PPS).

The only reference of the warmth of Cameron’s welcome for Kenyatta was in the following definitely backhanded remark by British author and political analyst Richard Dowden from his May 8 article headlined, “Kenyatta, Ruto and the ICC: major diplomatic earthquake in the offing”, which is bound to become instantly and hugely controversial: “But instead of slipping on the handcuffs this week, Mr Cameron grasped Mr Kenyatta warmly by the hand and welcomed him to London”.

Dowden, the Executive Director of the Royal African Society, is the author of Africa: Altered States, Ordinary Miracles (2008), with a foreword by Chinua Achebe.

The only still picture of President Kenyatta the British authorities released widely to the media was the one of his being welcomed to Lancaster House by the UK Africa Minister Phillip Hammond.

All other pictures of Kenyatta at the Conference showed clear evidence of being carefully cropped to edit out the faces of British and other officials anywhere in his vicinity, except members of his own entourage or nondescript foreign figures.

President Kenyatta must have endured not a few bizarre moments in London. He is surely aware that, at the height of the Cold War, Soviet and Chinese totalitarian leaders Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong’s handlers routinely ordered that perceived enemies be airbrushed out of photographs, as if they had ceased to exist. Premier Cameron’s handlers went one better than the dictators of the mid-20th Century – an entire episode of the Somalia Conference was simply digitally censored, as if it never happened, and, as in the case of the totalitarians, there was no official explanation forthcoming.

The conference was co-hosted by the governments of the UK and Somalia on May 7 and attended by at least 50 diverse national delegations. Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn was among the invitees.

The conference was called to extend international support for the government of Somalia, the first modern state to collapse completely, in rebuilding their country after decades of anarchic conflict.

Prime Minister Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague also met a number of the heads of the other delegations at Lancaster House rather than at Number 10 Downing Street or the Foreign Office. In protocol terms all the heads of government and, or state visits were designated “official”, just like Uhuru’s, as distinct from “State visit”.

On a full-blown State visit, a foreign head of State is received at Victoria Station by the Queen and Prince Philip and rides to Buckingham Palace in a splendid horse-drawn carriage, where he or she salutes their own national anthem and Britain’s God Save the Queen before inspecting a guard of honour and continuing with other elaborate rituals, including a call on Number 10.

However, Somalia President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud met Prime Minister Cameron at No. 10 Downing Street and also took the photo op outside the iconic front door. He was also photographed arriving at Lancaster House with Cameron.

‘UK PROSPERITY & SECURITY + 2 OTHERS’

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, whose motto, incorporated in the masthead of all its communications to do with the developing countries, both print and online, is the eye-catching, fairly candid and intriguing “Strengthening UK relationships in Asia, Latin America and Africa to support UK prosperity and security + 2 others”, was among President Kenyatta’s most unbending tormentors when he was a presidential candidate. 

However, as Dowden wrote on May 8, “When Britain and 121 other countries ratified the Rome statute establishing the ICC (a further 31 signed but have not yet ratified), it was assumed that states would cooperate with the Court. No one envisaged a situation in which someone indicted for crimes against humanity would be elected president”.

‘MIDDLE CLASS WILL LIE DOWN ON AIRPORT ROAD’

Dowden, who routinely refers to President Kenyatta as a "warlord", also wrote that it is "unthinkable” that Uhuru and Ruto will indeed cooperate with the ICC all the way to full-blown trials.

He asserted, “Even if they agreed to go, Kenyans – including the middle classes – will lie down on the road to the airport to prevent them going. Never mind that Kenya was given the choice to hold them to account in the Kenyan courts but failed to do so.

Never mind that Kenya’s international treaty obligations oblige the country to deliver them to The Hague. Never mind that both should already have been arrested by the Kenyan police and put on a plane, delivered to the court and locked up. They are not going to go”.

This is the kind of outburst that seriously gets the goat of UhuRuto’s fan base and which saw them vote like they have never voted before at the March 4 General Election. On the very same day that Dowden posted these views, the government of Kenya announced it was appealing to the United Nations Security Council for a discontinuation of the cases.
The last time this happened was during President Kibaki’s watch in a frenetic shuttle diplomacy mission undertaken by former longtime Foreign Affairs minister and then Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka when it was by no means clear that Uhuru and Ruto would go for nothing but the ultimate political prize – the Presidency.

Indeed, Kalonzo this week had occasion to recall his intercontinental shuttling that also included petitioning the UN in New York. Speaking at the Requiem Mass for Senator Mutula Kilonzo on Wednesday, in front of both Deputy President Ruto and retired President Mwai Kibaki, Kalonzo reported that Kilonzo had opposed him strenuously regarding what the former VP told the congregation was “the famous, or was it infamous?” shuttle diplomacy effort. Both the Deputy President and Kibaki’s handlers thought that Kalonzo’s was a very cheap shot indeed.

Ruto and Kibaki, who had their own fond memories of Kilonzo (including an advocate-client relationship in Ruto’s case) and shared them with the congregation, let Kalonzo’s barb ride.
There will be hell to pay for the protocol treatment meted out to President Kenyatta in London, particularly given Kenya’s famed hospitality credentials and avoidance of embarrassing or humiliating a guest at whatever level of engagement – high, low or “essential”. No British official has ever been treated in Nairobi the way Uhuru was treated in London.

The UhuRuto establishment will no doubt want to point out that Kenya has been largely responsible for restoring a semblance of peace and a genuinely new beginning to Somalia, that the President and Deputy President have so far cooperated with the ICC and that protocol bad manners at the very top, whatever the circumstances, are considered to be the pits in African, particularly Kenyan, tradition.

  3. From the looks of it, Uhuru/Githu/Karangi/Thuita did not need to embarrass themselves further by speaking a foreign language such as English or even Kiswahili for that matter.

  4. All this happened....Some of us are not opposed more so because we don't have the facts. However, one question still stands. Did the president invite himself to the UK, or was it on an invite by the UK prime minister? Then when all this snubbing takes place, one would want to question who is more dumber than the other????

  29. who cares?

  30. we are not interested with we hv our country called kenya

  31. So what, Kenyans will not and are never taken for a ride with your hog wash maneno.

  32. I have a feeling Uhuru is silently mad about the treatment and the British will soon be seeing his true colours. China here we come.....

  33. I feel it is unfair. Hata kama baba yako ni mbaya - ni wako. Watuache. Huyo ni wetu.

  34. I see UhuRuto haters are so obsessed with a photo with Cameron, why don't they send RAO to London for a photo op? It is better to come to terms, Uhuru is the president of Kenya, the man who bungled the campaign did not become.

  35. funda

  36. This is utter nonsense and has no meaning, nobody is going to threaten us no matter what, ICC is just a new post colonial tool to control Africa and we do not care anything about it. We can do without these fools, agents of Lucifer!

  37. Hawa wazungu wanaleta ushetani kama ule wa madoggy wa Mombasa halafu wanajiona kama hao wako na justice, but wao ni true devils from hell or Hague for that matter! Tuwakatae na tu face East na Russia kwa business!

  38. Last time I checked the so called 'west'has lost its glory, with economies collapsing and all kinds of unfavourable Laws and I don't think they fear God. Africa is coming up baby read the papers.And Kenya is leading Africa to the new era of growth and prosperity.They need us more than we need them.

  39. British???? they only one they can turn around on their small finger! among all Kenyans there is Just one type of people they can't take! fill it for yourself in!

  40. who cares u shud move on with life juu milishindwa!!!

  41. this stuff is long.... what are you saying? from the comments i guess ni upuzi... anything west is for cord so to hell with it.

  42. pole Mr President...just focus on pushing Kenya forward. Am sure all will be well, Truth will come out one day!

  43. YOU SEE, THIS CARMEL IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS.
    WE STOPPED INTEREST IN THEM LONG TYM. WHO IS THIS NGAMIA IN THE FIRST PLACE? HE CANT EVEN BE ELECTED A VILLAGE ELDER OR COUNCILLOR. UHURU IS OUR PRESIDENT AND WE R NOT INTERESTED IN THOSE PHOTOS WITH ALBINOS. IMBECILE

  44. uhuru, karangi githu thuita are all kikuyus. not kenyans. kenya was not represented.

  45. Does a visiting President demand a photo session with the host.This is hog wash!

  46. That was expected, so I don't see anything wrong with a mad man dragging rags behind him

  47. i love the president. who cares what cameron sy or do. sht!

  48. i love the president. who cares what cameron sy or do. sht!

  49. you must be an imbecile to publish such rubish. Firstly it is not correct. 2nd. Its not important nor was it the agenda of our president to be seen in good books with UK government, the policy he spelt is very clear, we will work with them if they are interested in working with us and NO arm twisting will be allowed. The UK government invived our president not the other way round. Give Uhuru one year and all will be dotting salivating morons running after Kenya.

  50. The Britons R angered by the mau mau case so just leave them. Furthermore why can't they go to Hague first 4 the crimes committed during the scramble for Africa. Thatcher n Queen worse than murderous.

  51. Take ur motherfucking mother 2 represent ur tribe if u got a problem with that

  52. Our president has already faced the knife, unlike some foreskins stinking somewhere in the UK and Nyanza.....Any wonder why they get along so much????

  53. I do remember seeing Uhuru with Cameroon on the same Photo. what have you to say Adawa?

  54. So what Joe Adama? Uhuru remains MY president by the powers confered to him by ME - one of 6M-plus Kenyan voters - He does not need the approval of the colonial masters as long as he has MY approval. History repeats itself; like his father Jomo who was pelted with eggs in britain, Uhuru will triumph against them. So kindly do me a one favour Joe Adama, shove your stupid news up yours. Thank you.

  55. they colonised our country and many got killed for us rule ourself ,now whats all this humiliting our president ?! move out of our country

  56. UHURUTO ARE LEADING 40 MLLION KENYANS WITH GOD'S HAND UPON THEM.THEY DON'T NEED DEVIL'S APPROVAL.WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE NO ONE CAN WIN AGAINST US. GOD HAS LAID A TABLE FOR UHURUTO IN THE PRESENCE OF THEIR ENEMIES LET US JOIN AND ENJOY AS WE THANK AND PRAISE GOD.

  57. are you gay...kwenda wewe dont give us crap

  58. FUCK THE BRITS AND THE WHITE TOO....UHURU IS MY PRESIDENT BETTER RECOGNIZE.

  65. Accept and move on. He is the president and the CIC of the KDF.



  66. We are calling the Nairobi Governor Hon. Evans Kidero to intervene and protect our plot ownership rights having been paying the land rates of our plots as required by the law..
    The MP for Embakasi West Hon. George Theuri and Count Rep. for Mowlem Ward Mr. Martin (Matu) together with some corrupt and greedy tycoons are planning to grab plots in Umoja III, Kcc, Mowlem, Saika, Obama and Mailo Saba with an intension of reselling the plots again to the plot holders at a price of one million shillings per plot, claming to have found the original owners of the said land.
    We are appealing to them to stop jeopardizing our lives otherwise come August 2013, we are seeking signatures to kick them out from power as immediately as provided by the law.Tumechoswa na uongozi wa tama na upepali, tuliwachagua lakini hawatuvai wanataka kujifaidi wenyewe hooo…ole wao.

  67. Bw Uhuru, yu are President of over 40M Kenyans. Yu have impressed yourself, Margaret yua Kids and Us. Usipate shida. So what if nyakeru showed yu mathaa? Those are the same goons who put yua dad away for 7 yrs, threw your mom in Kamiti and now you have to be nice to them? Yu have a lot of goodwill among Kenyans. Do your job and do it well. Don't Chase Turner away, let him see your success. From one to another and in true scorpionic patience, tread silently but carry a big f-----g stick!

  68. And who cares picha or no picha that cameron is a fool is no doubt he can go to to hell for all we care UHURU is our beloved president ordained and chosen by God.

  69. I want to cry..Why in Gods name should another country treat our country like trash.Why should Kenya always be treated as second rate country.When a democratically elected President is treated like this regardless of any accussations against him i want to cry..wail and scream myself hoarse..i am going nuts..i did not vote Kenyatta bu Kenya desrve better

  70. let us work with the emerging economies-BRIC to hell with the west........nktttttt

  71. Uhuru we wachana na hii mafunda ya Britain. Mantain essential conatcs with them too, starting with their high commission in kenya. Their army should vacate kenya. theirfactories should be shut forthwith and their farm taken ovver by kenyans. It now high time we rebelate oursels from new colonial yoke.

  72. Photographs with Cameron for Uhuru were not our priority this time.
    We never even expected our President to sit near him, leave alone dining with with him.
    The priority number one for our President is Security,Security,Security and this our men knows better and they did their best.
    For photos please you know who to invite for these.
    Kenya we have come from far,not everything beberu is thaabu mind you, or your memory is short???

  73. Making a mountain out of a mole hole, photos or no photos, the President went there for a noble cause, they can snob us all they want but at the end of the day they come out more mannerless and like snobish pink pigs while the President comes out as a noble man, our Prezzo carries himself with alot of dignity, may God bless Uhuruto

  74. kwani to hell with the whites who is more evil and dirty than them. UK colonized us its high time they leave us alone nowander muslims hate them

  75. UHURUTO AND KENYANS ARE ON EARTH LEGALLY AND BY DIVINE APPOINTMENT. THOSE SUFFERING FROM SUPERIORITY COMPLEX SHOULD NOT THINK WE ARE AVAILABLE TO BE MANIPULATED AND RULED BY REMOTE CONTROL.WHO GAVE THEM RULER-SHIP OVER OTHERS ??

  76. I am proud of my president. He has had it all his whole life, posed with Kenya's first president ever, ate with him and above all lived or slept in the same compound, talking of some white camel makes no sense at all.

  77. Haters with their mavi....ya kuku...

  78. News? > stale!

  79. This is the likes of one Mr Maina Kiai, and whether they like it or not he will remain my president and the president of the SOVEREIGN republic of Kenya, and our nature is we are never intimidated by hog bog actors.

  80. yaani kutoka kwa mkeka kuwa nusu, sasa shida yenyu ni picha........wonders will neva cease, mezeni wembe

  81. Uhuru ametahiri na Ruto ametahiri,nani hajatahiri?

  82. INFACT I WAS OF THE VIEW THAT HE SHOULDN'T HAVE TRAVELLED TO LONDON IN THE FIRST PLACE. Somalia is Kenyan neighbour and we(Kenya) have a very nice venue KICC. why take somali matter to London. after all was it not Kenya who sacrificed whole heartedly to liberate Somali. mambo ya picha kitugani. NI MBICA TUKURIA KANA TUGUIKIA IKUMBI

  83. I thought Kikuyu's are Kenyans. Mbona no ones coments when the PM goes with Prof Anyang' Nyong'o, James Orengo, Otieno Kajwang and Jakoyo Midiwo all from the Luo community.

    As for the British govt surely, this is so unfair, especially considering that this youth did not invite himself to their land. Uhuru should sue them in their own courts.

    Though there is one problem here, should Uhuru be acquited, who will pay for the damage caused in his person and his dear family??? Mchimba kisima huingia mwenyewe. Mbona we did not segregate their men and women here when their country hit the headline for all the wrong reasons, there were chaos all over Manchester just recently!!!!

    By the way, Kenya being their former colony, they should help rebuild our image and confidence and not join the others in embarassing us further.

  84. photos or no photos it does not change him from been the 4th president of the Republic of Kenya. further his album is full of them since colonial days

  85. I am a Photoshop professional. UHURU has my NUMBER and he knows he can rely on me big time. i WILL BE HONORED TO HELP LOOK LIKE HE WAS WITH THEM EVEN IN BED IF HE WANTS

  86. I'm very glad you've published this story.

    My fellow Kenyans, I urge you to read it carefully, cram it and take it to heart noting that this was the treatment meted out to the highest diplomat we have in this country, the President.

    Like Moi said, hakuna mtu anapenda mwafrika dunia mzima hata mwafrika mwenzake.

    Next we invite the Chinese, learn from them, work hard for the next 30 years at developing this country so that by 2043, it is the Western heads of states who will be looking for photo ops with our leaders.

    So stop this rubbish of Jubilee vs. CORD, shake hands and get down to work so that in one generation our children will not be humiliated in Western capitals with denial of VISAs, sijui essential contact, ethnic profiling and other bullshit!

    DONGE?

  87. Hi. tafadhali tusisambaziane chuki. Yaliyotendeka UK hayakuhusu mwanasiasa yeyote nchini. tunalohitaji ni kupendana kama watu wa jamii moja ya Kenya na kufanya kazi kwa bidii ili kuinua uchumi wa kila mmoja na nchi nzima licha ya changamoto zinazowakumba viongozi wetu kwa wakati huu. I am persuaded that with hard work and dedication to service of our people and this country we can go beyond the expectations of those who to discourage us by giving a cold shoulder to our elected leaders. we can use this challenges to benefit us by working harder to make kenya a great country.

  88. For the record: Uhuru DID NOT invite himself to the UK; he was INVITED. Why? Because he is a BIG PART of the equation. He can't just be wished away, and the British know this. Hate or love the man, he is Kenya's 4th President, by God's own choosing. And those interested in doing business with Kenya will have deal with him. Period !

  89. I do not care what the British thinks of Our president and his Deputy, the fact is Kenyatta is a head of state and they should give him respect accorded to him by his status. I was at the Kenyan meeting and the Inter continental Hotel was awash with the City police and Metropolitan police to protect the man they don't like. Just imagine how much tax payers money was spent to protect him? Wataongea mpaka wachoke. WATA DO?????

  90. They came to Kenya as preachers when all they were after were our lands,'as cunning as foxes they are',but they need Kenya more than Kenya needs them.It just doesn't make sense why a photo means so much in some quarters.Can you invite someone then ignore him/her if you are sensible?

  91. maavi ya nguruwe wao .they resemble the pigs.pigs pigs pink and white in colour .i love my country and my prezzo UK .llive long UK

  92. NO WHITES WILL DICTATE TO US. WE ARE A FREE NATION THAT FOUGHT THE BRITONS FOR OUR LIBERTY AND THEY SHOULD RESPECT OUR CHOICE OF LEADERS AND AGAIN I PERSONALLY HATE THE ICC AND ALL THEIR PRETENSIONS OF JUSTICE.SHAME ON THEM AND THEY SHOULD BE THE FIRST CULPRITS FOR THE ATROCITIES THEY METED OUT TO THE WORLD IN THE NAME OF KING AND CUONTRY.

  93. Uhuru ni wetu mpende msipende. photo sio hoja tunamlike tu sana na photo zake ziko kila pahali.

  94. if this is true, then the british should learn this saying: 'wash the hands that feeds you' i'll let them figure out what that means...

  95. What logic? It is not PM who takes photos or crops them but the Media! This is good stuff! If the ICC led majority Kenyans to vote with a fury, one can guess how healthy international media treatment is to us! It is the fuel we need for the Jubilee year: it revives our 1963 spirit! Of course, there is good reason for neo-colonialists to be jittery about those who plucked them out of Kenya, don't you think? Come on children and grand-children of freedom fighters! This is our time!

  96. Britons have prosecuted and sentenced Uhuru and thats why they are refering to him as a warlord. Are they the ones who know better as to who fannelled the 2007 post elections violence or is it Kenyan people? (of course minus their Maina Kiais, Makaus who always try hard to misinform and mislead the western world while posing as human rights activists and for them to be funded.

  97. Napoleon referred china as a sleeping giant,it came to be true.West check on kenya 5years to come.I would advise you guys west pple to work on your economy and leave kenya alone.Funda nyinyi.

  98. Am sure our president is not interested in going to UK, he only cares about a duty ahead of him of making somalia better in order for our country to shine. Hence, England does not matter to him and whatever happened is their problem not his. Shame on them!!! In fact if they invite him again for a cup of coffee or whatever else he wouldnt go am sure. It must be very important for the people of Kenya our great land.

  99. Seriously who cares you cant even call this news.There are many other things you can report on.This sounds like the things you hear in salons.

    Get serious Kenya Post and report on real news!Also stop the bias, you should be impartial and professional if you want to be taken seriously!

  100. its OK. he is our president, and our beloved child, they too are under the mercies of God.they are not the last solution we will continue to support him not matter.

  101. uhuru went to get some back shots from u know......

  102. the british killed very many kenyans,detained some,raped,and even castrated some.no wonder cameron stated that gayism will be tyred to aid.who wants a photo session with such people

  103. President or not/deputy president or not, a criminal will always remain a criminal until cleared. Posterity will still regard the 2 as criminals. Full stop

  104. and those acoompanied president were all kikuyus, ag muigai, chief of general staff karangi, mwangi etc....kikuyus are thieves and killers

  105. and those acoompanied president were all kikuyus, ag muigai, chief of general staff karangi, mwangi etc....kikuyus are thieves and killers

  106. Aiibu gani hii.... Bure kabisa! Aiiihh mboss we - wasapere na wa kale ndio wameleta hii aibu. Tutarecover kweli?

    Europeans are NOT WHITE in colour. They ARE PINK! as pink as PIGS and did you know there are PINK Monkeys and PINK baboons too? There are NO WHITE people in the world! 'White'refering to human beings is a colonial concept existing in the fertile minds of the PINK people. Any "white person of in the among the European race would be either a corpse or a very sick person nearing death". There are BLACK people alright like the Sudance and the Senegalese etc- beautiful, noble and pedigree human creatures whom the PINK people admired but grudgingly refered to as THE NOBLE SAVAGE. same on the PINK people!

  109. Weka hizi ng'ombe mbili Hague wanyongwe. Useless liars, pretenders and Thieves now pretending to be Messiahs of Kenyans. GOD's judgement is coming soon,,,Repent of GOD's wrath will befall you. Chor 7:14

  110. We Kenyans who live in Britain we are husslers and masufferers we know the discrimination and matharau we are shown, we have degrees/masters/phds but we are not given the jobs, and if you get the job they frustrate you in a subtle way until you resign. Kenyans have been a sleeping giant and it is time we woke up, our prayer is that we will find plenty within our borders as our national anthem proclaims, and put politics aside and with the spirit of harambee we will pool together our resources and rebuild our land. A photo with Cameron will not have added any value to our image, we are already the envy of the world the way we conducted ourselves during elections (peacefully) we put them to shame. We are proud to be Kenyans and seeing the cabinet secretaries being interviewed we have seen that we had given other countries our top brains, it is time we had operation rudi nyumbani because Kenya is now embracing our experiences as professionals and leave these West countries and come and build our nation.
