Who was dead? Peter Kenneth fights back after meeting with Raila
Peter Kenneth speaks
Minutes after photos of their meeting emerged on social media, Mr. Kenneth faced sharp criticism from a section of the public, who questioned the reasons behind his sudden appearance.
Mr. Kenneth, who is known to be very active during election periods, was not one to keep quiet when the attacks were fired on social media. He replied to his attackers fearlessly.
One John Kimunyi said: "Huyu Kenneth anakujanga tu time ya uchaguzi then anaishia.”
Mr Kenneth fired back stating: "Is it really time for the election? discussing national issues."
Another tweep Victor Odipo posted: “You unearthed him from his hiding place? I like the way you address him as former Assistant Minister (referring to Mr. Kenneth). Respect."
In response, the former MP said: "Hiding from what?"
Arch Kibwege said: "amefufuka."
Replying to Kibwege Mr. Kenneth questioned: "Who was dead?"
Here are other reactions:
Kenneth met with Mr Odinga to discuss the 16-percent VAT imposed on petroleum products in the country.
The former Prime Minister assured Kenyans that a solution to finance the expensive Government budget will be found without overburdening the public.
"Earlier today I met former Assistant Minister Peter Kenneth and among the issues we discussed is the legitimate concern that the rising cost of fuel will touch all other areas and could cause food inflation and demands for higher pay by workers, which will hurt employers.
"The challenge now is to find ways of balancing between the need to raise money to run the country while protecting the vulnerable members of society. A way out has to be found," Odinga said.
