  • President Uhuru Kenyatta openly admitted to being under pressure while speaking in Dongo Kundu in Mombasa County on Friday, October 18.

    The president, however, while launching the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) argued that he was not stressed up by the current politicking going on in the country as many would have thought.

    Kenyatta disclosed that development projects were tying him down and that he was worried about the little amount of time he had to ensure that most of them were launched.

    "I have read in the newspapers that Uhuru is under pressure. Yes, I am under pressure. There are many projects and time is limited. You will be lying to yourself If you think that my pressure arises from useless politics,"  Kenyatta ranted.

    The president then told off the naysayers in the country and stated that he was too busy working in order to maximise the little time he has.

    At the time of his speech, Kenyatta had launched two other projects before getting to the SEZ in Dongo Kundu.

    He had officially opened the Toyota Hilux assembly plant at Mombasa and also launched the HPV vaccination drive in the fight against cervical cancer.

    In his speech at the Toyota Assembly Plant Launch, the head of state sent a warning shot at local businessmen who kept running to the courts to oppose his directives.

    He further announced that he would not step back from his decision to reduce the number and ages of imported second-hand vehicles.

    During the HPV vaccine launch, he reiterated the government's commitment to fighting cervical cancer by ensuring that all girls were immunised.
