‘Uhuru is Crying out for Help!’ Linus Kaikai Insights on President’s Anger

Citizen TV Director of Strategy and Innovation Linus Kaikai has tried to explain why President Uhuru Kenyatta is losing his cool so often in public these days.

Kaikai believes that the President is under immense pressure from Deputy President William Ruto, who has made inroads into the Mt. Kenya region without the State Houses help.

“He is crying saying, ‘listen to me, I’m speaking to your hearts’. Is he under pressure from Ruto? Yes,” Kaikai said on his News Gang TV show.

The senior journalist explained that for the President to revert to his Kikuyu language to explain himself, was an indication of how desperate and corned he is.

“He has not taken it from any of the previous presidents. Not once did Mwai Kibaki speak his native language even under pressure. Daniel Moi was never quoted speaking in Kalenjin,” he stated.

This comes after President Kenyatta read three separate riot acts to members of his party allied to the Deputy President in his mother tongue.

In August, he broke into a fit of anger in front of his deputy when both attended a church group, Akorino Convention, at Kasarani, Nairobi.

“I’m not your boy. When the time comes, I’m going to get you out of those secret places you hide. You always see me very quiet but I know a lot,” an angry President said in Kikuyu.

The next meeting where he showed his anger publicly was at Sagana State Lodge, when he met Mt Kenya leaders.

The Head of State criticised politicians who endear themselves to the DP, saying that all they do is petty politicking.

The latest outburst was on Wednesday 4th December, when he officially opened a dispensary in his Gatundu backyard in Kiambu County.

He accused the DP Ruto group, which identified itself as Tanga Tanga, of double speak on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report, which he initiated with ODM leader Raila Odinga.

“Before the document was out, they were all over against it. Now, it is out and I even don’t know the route they are taking,” the visibly angry President said.
