@MutahiNgunyi The end is nigh..folks with an attitude like yours come down crumbling in shocking speeds..Trust in God and not in your own understanding— joseph nduti (@josefnduti) May 3, 2018

What a coincidence,the same day your employer Cambridge Analytica is closing shop you're asking us to forgive you— Mwasaru (@m_mwasaru) May 2, 2018

Forgiveness is a 2-way street. You are supposed to forgive from the heart all those who have offended you deliberately or inadvertently. And then, have the humility to ask for forgiveness from all those whom you have wronged inadvertently or deliberately. Yours sounds incomplete.— James Louis Ndirangu (@ndirangu_l) May 3, 2018

Such mockery of what true forgiveness is. Better to remain silent.— Gilda Odera (@godera) May 3, 2018

President Uhuru’s speech focused on steps he had taken and the progress achieved in the furtherance of national values; progress made in fulfilling Kenya’s international obligation and the state of the nation’s security.

Uhuru outlined his administration’s plan for implementing campaign pledges and measures geared towards achieving his Big Four agenda.


The President called upon Kenyans to remain united after a long electioneering period in 2017 that saw many lose lives and others nursing injuries.
“Never again should a Kenyan life be lost for politics sake. Never again should a Kenyan lose property because of politics. We must we must be frank with ourselves. That cannot happen by itself. Let us admit that we all failed to hold our country together last year. Let us each apologise for our words, anger and malice. From Mandera to Maseno, from Mbita to Mvita, from Lodwar to Lunga-Lunga and embrace our neighbours,” said Uhuru.
