Kenyans pile on Sakaja after Uhuru speech

Kenyans pile on Sakaja after Uhuru speech

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday announced a ban on alcohol in restaurants and eateries and Kenyans on social media platform Twitter are an angry lot.

They, popularly known as KoT, are however not necessarily angry at the Head of State; they have trained their guns a different direction, towards Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja.

Let me explain:

In his speech, President Kenyatta ordered police officers to “spare no mheshimiwa” when enforcing the curfew imposed to thwart the spread of COVID-19.

This coincidentally, comes just little over a week since Senator Sakaja was arrested for flouting the regulations after he was found drinking at a Kilimani bar during curfew.

According to a police report seen by Citizen Digital at the time, a visibly intoxicated Sakaja turned rowdy and violent when asked to go home and instead allegedly started name-dropping

The police officers were hence forced to place him in custody, upon which he threatened to make sure they were all transferred within 24 hours.

It is this incident, still fresh in the minds of KoT, that now has them convinced largely drove President Kenyatta to institute the ban on alcoholic drinks.

They’re now blaming Sakaja — who later however apologised to Kenyans for his behavior – and trolling him with some of the most hilarious memes on the internet.
