Political Analyst Mutahi Ngunyi on Tuesday explained to Kenyans online why President Uhuru Kenyatta was a no show at the IEBC meeting at the BOMAS of Kenya.
According to Mr Ngunyi, the President does not show up at the IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati’s pleasure, instead Chebukati goes to Uhuru.
”As President, Uhuru does not go to Chebukati. Chebukati goes to Uhuru. If dialogue is not at the State House, Uhuru will not show. That simple!” he said.
