Fuel, Electricity Prices to Rise Again; KCAA Renews Bid to Repossess Ruto’s Land & Why Maraga Wants Top Officers Vetted

Good morning,

Much has been said about retired president Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-emergence into the political scene.

After maintaining months of silence, the Ex-president over the weekend blasted the current government for continuously blaming him over the intolerable living conditions in the country, and he also asserted that his affiliation is strongly towards the Azimio coalition.

While some have welcomed Uhuru’s outburst owing to his freedom of expression, others have scolded him harshly, demanding that he return to his political retirement cave and let his successors implement their strategies.

Another section of Kenyans believe that Uhuru’s sentiments were strategically placed to signify his comeback into politics.

This is because over the past few months, Kenyans have been crying for him to return to vocal politics and join his Azimio counterparts in rescuing the country from the gripping Kenya Kwanza economic policies.

What do you think Uhuru’s true intentions are?
