  • Citizen TV's Director of Strategy and Innovation, Linus Kaikai, on Thursday, sent out a passionate plea to President Uhuru Kenyatta regarding the highly publicised La Mada meetings.

    Speaking on live TV, the eloquent journalist told Uhuru that the future of the matter was in the hands of State House and that it was up to him to shut it down once and for all.

    He further added that the matter had exploded outside the country and that it did not paint Kenya well, in the neighbouring Ugandan streets.

    "President Uhuru Kenyatta must come to terms with the fact that La Mada has divided his government and it's just about to render it dysfunctional.

    "President Kenyatta must shut down the La Mada paintball center and he can do that by reconstituting government and naming a coherent legacy cabinet. That is what presidents do," offered Kaikai.

    "I just got back from Uganda this afternoon and from the conversations on the streets there, the La Mada circus needs to end for two reasons.

    "First, it is painting our country as idiotic and mediocre gossip corner version of a state. Secondly, it is painting the government as idle, clueless and childish," continued Kaikai.

    To drive the point home, the journalist singled out players who were taking the matter out of proportion arguing that the politics threatened to displace the very important Big 4 Agenda.

    "A principal secretary, supposedly a junior, is telling off the deputy president, supposedly his boss. Four cabinet secretaries are on the verge of displacing the Big 4 Agenda for their undying commitment to the La Mada meetings," he added.

    Since the assassination claims came to the fore towards the end of June through a letter, Digital, Innovations and Diaspora Communications Secretary, Dennis Itumbi, has since been arrested (and later released on a Ksh 100,000 cash bail) on accusations that he shared the letter online.

    The blogger was ordered to report to Muthaiga Police Station every two days as well as deposit his passport in court.

    He was also asked not to make comments about the case on social or mainstream media.
