Uhuru's tweet on Matiba backfires badly as Kenyans react in anger

Not happy!

Shortly after making a speech at Matiba's funeral service held at the All Saints Cathedral, the President tweeted on the need for leaders to emulate the deceased politician with regard to youth mentorship.

"Leaders should mentor young people who will take over the mantle of leadership in all spheres of life just like Matiba did. True leadership is not scared of mentoring and training others to take over from them ," President Kenyatta stated.

Wainaina Kariuki's reply tweet, which later went viral, noted the government's failure to end the lecturer's strike that has lasted for more than two months.

"If you care about the youth, the Lecturers strike will be over by now," Kariuki stated.

Other users challenged President Kenyatta to highlight any leaders he has mentored in the spirit of honouring Matiba.
