Uhuru’s embarrassing photo that should have never gone public – Larry Madowo exposes

This Uhuru photo should never have been shared on social media

In his weekly column Frontrow, Mr. Madowo recorded several times the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) has embarrassed President Kenyatta instead of focusing on its main duty which he says should be on how the Head of state appears in public.

The SideBar host highlighted a photo of Mr. Kenyatta that was shared widely on social media while in the company of suspected Anglo Leasing scandal mastermind Deepak Kamani.

The picture taken at Diani Reef Hotel, a facility owned by Kamani, landed first on the internet after it was posted by the hotel on its social media platform.

Failure

The journalist mentioned that this was a failure on the part of Kenyatta’s communication team which should know that a meeting with Mr. Kamani would be tragic to the President’s image as he has been emphasising his zero tolerance against corruption.

“The same Head of State who said it will no longer business as usual and every shilling would be accounted for mixing with a man whose name pops up in every corruption scandal is a new low.

“If his communications team got over their own self- importance and worried about optics, they would know that such a meeting should never happen, whether in public or private,” Madowo opined.

The news anchor accused President Kenyatta of speaking out of both ends of his mouth when it comes to matters corruption.

Fake accounts

“How he is comfortable being photographed with such a man when his party has frequently railed against Nasa’s embrace of another well-connected “tenderpreneur”, Jimmy Wanjigi, is baffling,” Madowo wondered.

He also took a jibe at State House Director of Communication Dennis Itumbi who he alleged uses fake social media accounts to spread propaganda.

“I accused Itumbi of employing an unknown number of bots or fake accounts to amplify his propaganda when we both appeared on NTV’s Press Pass and he didn’t deny it.

“He is in charge of digital at PSCU so he has direct access to the social media accounts and he has previously tweeted using the same hashtag on his personal account," he mentioned.

The photo of Mr. Kenyatta with Kamani was sharply criticised with many questioning how the President can comfortably associate himself with the man.
