Kenyans have reacted to government spokesperson Eric Kiraithe’s remarks about Kenya having no problem with Donald Trumps remarks calling African countries ‘Shithole’ countries.
However Kenyans had an issue with the statement saying that one individual cannot speak on behalf of 44 million Kenyans.
Wacha wakae na hio flight path yao..kwani since 1963 watu wamekua wakienda huko aje…we can't allow stupid leaders to talk on behalf of 44+ million Kenyans…

Kenyans accused the spokesman of trying to secure the new partnership to have Kenya have a direct flight to the USA from October. Some said that we would use the same routes that we have been using since 1963.
Some Kenyans on twitter accused the USA of helping Kenyans to rig elections hence the said that the government would applaud every statement from Donald Trump.
Jubilee govt can't criticise The US because they helped them rig the election.

They also said that Kenyans and the government should be separated. The Kenyan Government does not have an issue with the statements but Kenyans did.
