But its regrettable to waste all these knowledge on secession papers n 'Republic of Lakeside Kenya' while the likes of Gerishon Ikiara, Mutua Kilaka n others are drafting global economic papers for world Bank n IMF. Just who bewitched you.— Brigadier General (@BrigadierBrigad) February 23, 2018

Sir David, I am trying to give a civic education lesson i.e. that constitutional rights are/ought to be as sacrosanct as religion.— David Ndii (@DavidNdii) February 23, 2018

? see you still retain alot of your victorian economics as the main anchor of your approach but i believe you may be aware that economics has evolved with alot of cultural flavors far away from hard theories— james henry oduol (@OduolHenry) February 23, 2018

You're just like those people you always criticize if you can't accept criticism for what you tweet. Those people are just exercising their freedom of expression.— AntonyWairimu (@WairimuAntony) February 23, 2018
