Exclusive information are now filtering in on the behind the curtain political happenings during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s recent visit to County 008.
Sources privy to the happenings indicate that President Uhuru was highly disappointed in Team Shuluk for lying to him that Wajir residents are fully behind Jubilee. The president reportedly never minced his words and went ahead to single out Keynan, Mohammed Fai and the Ambassador for giving him wrong picture of the situation on ground.
The President is said to have been angered by the hostile reception he received at the historical Orahey grounds, and blamed the mess on political immaturity of the triplet. He reportedly called them politically naïve and poor readers of the mood on ground.
“You lied to me. As far as I am concerned, it’s only you guys who have joined Jubilee, but your people haven’t. You have openly ashamed me in front of the media and Kenya at large!” a dejected Uhuru told the politicians on their face.
The president went ahead to blame the trio by revealing that he has never been heckled in Wajir. He is said to have abandoned his plans of offering Wajir big goodies he had on offer because of the hostility he faced on the ground and squarely placed all the blame on Team Ambassador.
He instantly abandoned his plans for big job offers for sons and daughters of Wajir, the opening of the power plant and the new Districts that were to be created. Uhuru and Ruto reportedly told off Team Shuluq for barely being in touch with the ground. The Serena factor played in when the president mocked them for making their declarations and political statements from five star hotels in Nairobi rather than amongst their people.
He blamed them for being out of touch with the people for the last five years as the Governor took advantage of the loophole and made strong inroads across the County by constantly being on the ground with his people and launching different projects, a scenario the president said has given Ahmed Jiir a lot of political mileage.
Uhuru was reportedly furious with NASA’s popularity in Wajir and angrily told the trio to do their ground work well and reverse the worrying political trend that has suddenly become a threat towards his reelection. This entire hullabaloo happened at Wajir Airport VIP section as the president and his entourage prepared to fly out. The President surprised all those around at the time by praising the Governor and the county government for job well done in front of Team Shuluq!!
