Kenya’s fourth President Uhuru Kenyatta might not make it in the 2017 elections. Under his leadership, the country has been a global object of ridicule for the following reasons:
During his presidency, the country has been rocked by one terror attack after another. All the way from the Westgate Mall attack, the Mpeketoni attacks, Eastleigh recurrent bombs, Kapedo and Garissa University attacks which claimed the lives of many innocent Kenyans.
In one of online reports that was received with a lot of criticism, CNN called Kenya ‘a hotbed of terror’ and were afraid that POTUS Obama was to make a trip to the country.
- Wildlife protection gimmicks
Wildlife conservationists are bitter than Uhuru’s government is not keen to protect one of the best tourism attractor in the country. Though he torched the poached rhino and elephants tusks earlier in the year, poaching is still going on.
- Defunct and Toothless Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission
If there is one thing that Hon Uhuru Kenyatta’s government has successfully failed in curbing, it is corruption. The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has indeed proved to be a toothless dog unable to put behind bars the likes of Josephine Kabura, Eurobond beneficiaries and the Health Scandal perpetrators.
- Fight on media
The president has been very proactive in fighting the media houses. Not once has he been quoted stating that Newspapers are only fit for wrapping meat in.
Every year, the country churns thousands and thousands of graduates. They immediately get disappointed once they realize that there are no jobs on offer. They feel embittered that the government is doing little to employ them after wasting so many years in school.
- Unfulfilled promises
Towards 2013, the youthful duo, Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto traversed the country unleashing their Jubilee Government Manifesto. They promised of better health care, free laptops to class one pupils and improved infrastructure. Three years down the line, they have terribly failed in their scorecard. At the time of this publication, doctors are on strike for poor pay, pupils are yet to receive their promised free laptops while little has been done to improve roads.
- Development lack in Kiambu
Over the years, President Uhuru Kenyatta has somehow forgotten his home turf, Kiambu County. He goes from one county to the other launching development agendas yet forgetting his home county which was so generous to vote him in with the highest percentage in 2013. Kiambu County is bitter and ready to revenge.
