Uhuru's Last Message Before Deactivation of Social Media Accounts

  • Kenyans were surprised on Friday morning by the deactivation of President Uhuru Kenyatta's social media accounts after he posted messages warnings against corruption in the country.

    The president fired shots against his family, friends and political allies informing them that he would fight them if they were corrupt.

    The messages posted on social media referred to a speech the president made while in Namibia.

    Uhuru spoke at the Windhoek Country Club as he met Kenyans living in Namibia on Thursday. 

    "If you are corrupt we will fight you. You can be my brother or my sister or my closest political ally, but if you are corrupt we will fight you,” asserted Uhuru.

    "I won't be clouded by ethnicity or status in my quest to leave behind a united nation and I will continue championing for Kenya's unity," he added.

    The president also assured the Kenyan people in the diaspora that the crackdown on corrupt individuals would continue and that more efforts would be made to bring back integrity to the nation's public service.

    "Kenya has great potential but there is need to change practices that hinder the country from achieving progress," informed Uhuru.

    The president also reminded Kenyans that corruption is a vice that requires all citizens to unite and fight against it so that the country can progress.

    This comes after Deputy President William Ruto recently communicated that he was being targeted in the war against corruption.

    State House Chief of staff Nzioka Waita came out on Twitter to explain why the president's communication handles had been suspended citing unauthorised access by unnamed persons.

    He, however, associated the matter with reactions to the president's stand on corruption.
