Peter Kenneth and Martha Karua excited Kenyans on Twitter after they addressed the press with Mt Kenya leaders.

Most commentators were surprised to see the two leaders who contested for elective posts and lost.

With over 4,000 tweets shared about them on Wednesday afternoon, some of the commentators went as far as castigating them for alleged attempts to remain relevant.

Here are some of the comments that were shared.


Moses Kuria Causing Ripples

The two leaders, who are both former presidential candidates, were giving their input in the ongoing feud between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria over development in the Mt Kenya region.

The leaders also addressed the "tanga tanga team" which is believed to be doing pre-election campaigns around the country.


The tanga tanga team has been going round the country as way of distracting the President from the Big Four Agenda, and also to prevent him from fighting corruption,” the leaders said in their statement.
