    I wonder whether this admonition also applies to Mr. Chris Kirubi and the other prominent businessmen who travelled to China with the president in August, where according to a piece on the visit on this site, the junket spearheaded “…trade discussions that Kenya and China can partner in”.

    Given the apparent disconnect between Mr. Kenyatta’s proclamations and his actions, he has lost quite some credibility!
    The president should stop with the weekly pronouncements and let the results of his policies speak for themselves.

      Yours is an empty accusation. If you have details of any corrupt activity, take them to the EACC. If you have no faith in Kenyan institutions, have the corrupt activities highlighted through the media either through Mwalimu Mati, the opposition or any anti government activist.

        Did you even read my post? I never accused anyone of anything…nor do I have “details of any corrupt activity”…I just pointed out the hypocrisy of Mr. Kenyatta’s message given his recent trip to China..
        You are right: I have little faith in Kenyan institutions given their history which is why I am expressing my opinion.

          . Yes I did. You have implied corruption by posing whether the President’s warning applies businessmen who accompanied him to China. The corrupt practice implied here is that they use politicians to broker government contracts. If you have any evidence of such, please take it to the listed authorities or busy bodies stated in my previous post. Your accusation is that the admonition by the President may be partial and may not apply to the business men who accompanied the President to China.

            I asked whether Mr. Kenyatta’s admonition applies to the likes of Chris Kirubi who accompanied him to China…
            YOU wrote that the question was “an empty accusation”…Why did you think that it was “an empty accusation”?
            And yes…I want to know whether the president is being honest in his admonition of ALL power brokers and influence peddlers given the fact that his trip to China included businessmen who are the quintessential brokers and peddlers.

            ”And yes…I want to know whether the president is being honest in his admonition of ALL power brokers and influence peddlers given the fact that his trip to China included businessmen who are the quintessential brokers and peddlers.”…the foregoing is a great example of what I refer to as an empty accusation devoid of evidence. What evidence do you have that these businessmen are quintessential brokers and influence peddlers?? If none, we call that an empty accusation – devoid of substance. Presidents and heads of government on trade missions abroad always have established captains of industry accompany them in order to grow trade between the two Countries. You posed in your initial post “The president should stop with the weekly pronouncements and let the results of his policies speak for themselves.” His trip and policy of growing trade with China accompanied by these businessmen not only resulted in investment by the Chinese government of $5 Billion into Kenya but also established business to business trade links that will result in job creation and growth of the Kenyan economy. That is the outcome of his “weekly pronouncements” and the result of his policies translated into the ground-breaking and commencement of construction of the standard gauge railway a month ago. Enuff Said!!

            I know that Chris Kirubi..whose history of sycophancy and influence peddling dates back to his days at Kenatco and Uchumi is well known and documented was part of the presidential junket to China. You call them “captains of industry” I call them “power brokers and influence peddlers”…Like they say: One man’s “liberator” is another man’s “terrorist”..
            It is indeed presidential prerogative to inaugurate new infrastructure…it is mundane and trivial; certainly un-presidential to make frequent pronouncements such as this one on the “evil” power-brokers and influence-peddlers…especially when your junket to China includes “captains of industry”…er…make that “power-brokers and influence peddlers”..

    In every Gov, Organization, & even in our Homes, the Head, from time to time, must give a ‘Pep’ talk to the Juniors & stream line whatever difficulties that have or may be encountered along the way! What is strange when UK & Ruto do the same!?
