    What a BIG mistake. Kenyans hate projects.ask uhuru. Mudavadi and mugambi will confirm this come 4th

  • kanges

    Very successful debate always for Kenyatta because most of the questions are centered on him and the good thing is that his answers are at the finger tips. CONGRATES OUR PRESIDENT IN WAITING.

    • bobcat

      Nothing was centered on him, you just have a victim mentality.

    • Jacob

      I wonder where your concentration was during the debate!

    • Ngava

      Seems we lost u in the interview while u were admiring UK!

    • you did not concentrate on the debate. he was not straightforward in his answers. he owns over 500,000acres which only shows how he is



    • imagin all that!!. hata akiuza 100 per acre he will get 3m from land that belong to taita taveta people.

  • terry thairu

    i expected his accusers to do their investigations well, present prove of HOW MANY ACRES he OWNS in each COUNTY, b4 u accuse someone do yr homework well…BY the way HOW OLD WAS UHURU WHEN THE DAD PASSED ON????

    • find out from him, but let him give back the land that belong to kiambu people

  • suluhisho

    Baseless allegations are amongst discords most trusted sources of propaganda albeit failing miserably in them often.UhuRUTOsha wave cannot be stopped now.

    • hatoshi hata kuwa kiambu county rep. hawamtaki

  • shalom

    About 70-80% of land is communal not titled 10%Gvt,6% private 4% other. sort the 80% shida itaisha all the old guys – The paramount chiefs,VPs,Prezzo wilihamisha watu to create space where they lived if you sort this you will manage the bigger monster.Owning they own what they do with it is the solution/problem. The Land issue for the people who are focused is not the main thing other than politicking …main issue how do we put food on the table for the 42m people and remain with some to even donate/sale to create wealth. Jubilee have articulated as land will be adjudicated. By the way 2013 is Jubilee year watch the space..spiritually

    Congrats Mr. President; We see you know how to answer and tackle issues in debates, especially when your competitors try to pin on you questions that are so emotive.

    Your chances are high of being voted as President. Congratulations

    • you talk like that bocoz you are not his neighbours in Kiambu who are complaining for being displaced.

  • If You have this vast land and your house is in the middle well fenced and
    with dogs….do you really have neighbors?…if so do you really care to
    send all your brother neighbors to be squatters by buying off their
    land and pledge to lead them effectively?….in Kiambu there is a land problem even if you have money you cant find a place to buy!!….because all is kenyatta land ….I bet you will want to hide state house and parliament far away to be reached by your subjects.
