Top Statehouse operatives and close buddies of president Uhuru have expressed concern over the Holy Father- Pope Francis’ visit and meeting with the president.
The two operatives, also former classmates of the president at Catholic elite school, St Marys, are scared of the possibility that Uhuru may be moved to resign upon his meeting with Father Pope Francis.
The two operatives, both devout Catholics, were heard discussing mitigation strategies and agreed that the president should be accompanied throughout the Papal visit (no-one-one bilateral with pope).
The Speaker of the U.S. Congress, a devout Catholic, resigned after his meeting with the Pope. He could not reconcile the position of his party and the message of humility, inclusion, and empathy from the Pope and this is why the two operatives think Uhuru, a devout Catholic may resign after meeting the Holy Father – Pope Francis when he comes to kenya.
Indeed it will be impossible to reconcile Tribalism, Nepotism, Corruption, Inequality and Impunity that Uhuru is propagating under his administration with simple message of humility, inclusions, and empathy as lived and taught by the Pope.
The lives lost in Westgate, Mandera bus and the 147 Mandera university student skilled by poorly equipped terrorists as Recce squard were being felled by road to scene are one too many instances that may push Uhuru to submission. Recently two teachers from Uhuru’s backyard have committed due to government’s failure to pay September salaries- all these evils are against the teachings of Pope Francis.
The two, a former MP in Muranga County and ex-aide to President Kibaki are not comfortable with the current goings on and think the runaway corruption and treasury report that we are approaching an economic cliff are basis of Pope Francis’ teachings and are scared that an erratic Uhuru may pull a surprise.
Despite projecting a strong image, Uhuru is weak deep inside, he gives up so easily and doesn’t seem to have much to lose were he to resign. Only the predators close to the presidency are keen to retain power to amaze more wealth and also protect the ill-gotten loot. The NYS, Eurobond scandal architects are expected to hold onto the president at any cost.
