It is exactly a day after what Kenyans believe is a special day to honour loved ones but many can now think it has been commercialised.
A survey done by one of the local dailies revealed that a majority of Kenyans spent between Ksh 1,000 and Ksh 4999 on gifts on Valentine’s day while a few mostly referred to as the big bosses spent between Ksh 5,000 and Ksh 10,000.
The day nonetheless did not interfere with the country’s politics as details emerge on how President Uhuru Kenyatta is relentless in ensuring the former premier Raila Odinga succeeds him by nipping his deputy in the bud.
It has now emerged that the president has lined up a litany of charges that he intends to unleash to the court of public opinion to discredit his principal assistant.
Unlike in the past when he ignored attacks from the Deputy President and his surrogates, Uhuru is this time leaving no one with a chance; with his allies telling Kenyans to expect more salvos directed at Ruto.
It is believed that the president will share details of the fallout with his deputy that will discredit him and his bid to succeed him.
