Sunday August 25, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday maintained that the people of Kenya remain his only friends in his final journey as the Head of State.
Speaking at the burial of John De’Mathew yesterday, a tough-talking Uhuru warned that he will not defend anyone who is found on the wrong side of the law, even if it happens that they are related.
In a message directed to his close allies, Uhuru said that he is only concerned with service delivery, adding that Kenyans will be concerned about his legacy after all.
“We shall keep that vow because I personally have no friends other than the people of Kenya,” he said.
On the thorny issue of 2022 elections, he said he cared less about factoring it in his actions and moves.
“I am also not seeking re-election and don’t care who is caught in the mix,” he said in reference of those caught in anti-graft purge.
The Head of State also warned warlords, arguing that the state will take stern actions against them irregardless of who they are.
“You hear some people out there say, ooh fulani mrudi kwenyu na nyinyi mrudi kwenyu. Kwenu ni wapi? Kwenyu ni mahali mwenyezi mungu amekuweka katika taifa letu la Kenya. Huko ndiko kwenyu,” he said.
