Who really acts as President when President Kibaki is away? The answer will not surprise those in the know but many other Kenyans will be dumbfounded.
Impeccable sources have informed this blogger of a very curious incident that took place recently that is really scary and clearly proves just how incompetent and disorganized the Kibaki administration must be.
On the memorable day that first lady Lucy Kibaki visited Kenyatta National Hospital and made a scathing attack on internal security minister George Saitoti, the president was out of the country in Ethiopia. You will remember that the first lady said that the internal security docket should be headed by a woman and demanded a written explanation from Saitoti about his handling of the ministry.
Be careful because if your hard drive crashes you reduce the chances of successful data recovery by trying to revive the hard drive on your own. It is always a better idea to call in the experts right away.
What Kenyans do not know is that after that press conference Lucy Kibaki ordered Francis Muthaura to immediately issue a Presidential Press Service (PPS) statement announcing the sacking of Prof george Saitoti and replacing him with Nyeri town MP Esther Murugi Mathenge. Just when the statement was about to be released to the press, hurried calls were made from State House Nairobi to Ethiopia to confirm the contents of the explosive press statement.
This is what really caused Kibaki to hurry back from his Ethiopia engagements. The excuse given was that Emilio hurried back because of the Molo fire tragedy (how funny for those who know the man). In actual fact the man hurried back to veto Lucy’s mini-cabinet re-shuffle and issue a statement emphasizing on the confidence he has in George “Goldenberg” Saitoti.
What a way to run the country!!!
