President Kenyatta considered as visitor to Kenya by Kenyans On Twitter
By Future Youth | December 9th 2015
Our government announced austerity measures to curtail the excessive waste of public funds on trips abroad, but it seems it was all words and no actions. The social media craze about our globe-trotting president has burst into twitter with KOT (Kenyans on Twitter) running #UhuruInKenya, mocking the visiting president on his record-breaking jet-setting trend.
This has not gone unnoticed with major news organisations in Kenya and around the world like Aljazeera and Yahoo news picking up on it and just before the trend cools down, he is already packing his bags for his next trip to Rwanda.
Some of the best tweets include:
1) @Vwanii- Kenyans optimistic Uhuru visit will benefit country #UhuruInKenya
2) @peninahmurunga- I thought when you are spending someone else's money, you do it modestly #UhuruInKenya #ourtaxes.
3) @kevanbett-Thousands of Kenyans line up at Kasarani stadium where visiting President Kenyatta is set to address #UhuruInKenya
4) @fiona_theartist -Uhuru making a stop over in Kenya before proceeding with his world tour. #UhuruInKenya
5) @Steve_kewa- Ati our President has changed from digital to aerial. #UhuruInKenya
6) @RDistinct -Breaking news Kempinsky hotel to host the traveling president...waiyaki way closed
7) @NdiranguK -How is the traffic situation on Waiyaki way and around Westlands #UhuruInKenya
8) @wanjiru_jugush - is great honour to host two world leaders in two weeks, pope and president of tourist kenietta.
Kenyatta's jet-setting ways are being compared with the cost-cutting announced by the newly elected president of neighboring Tanzania, John Magufuli, who since taking office last month has restricted official travel and banned perks like government-printed Christmas cards.
