Julie Gichuru in trouble over IEBC comments

The former TV Queen is under fire.

Some felt that her public support of a regime that has been accused of grand corruption, extra-judicial killings and empty promises is a grand betrayal to the people who loved her for her wholesome nature.

And since then her Tweets have placed her smack at the center of severe backlash from Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) who feel that she has been preaching peace at the expense of justice.

She has now been caught up in another Twitter firestorm after urging Kenyans to let IEBC do their job and demanding for safety to be guaranteed to IEBC staff.

“The IEBC must be allowed to do their job. Their officers/staff must be guaranteed safety. The voter must not be disenfranchised. #NoAnarchy.” Read her tweet.

A tweet that has caused backlash and wild reactions on Twitter with many admonishing her for her comment and others accusing her of just fuelling the Uthamaki narrative.

Here are some reactions:
