Uhuru orders journalists to leave his function

Just in

President Kenyatta launched the Service Standing Orders (SSOs) at the Kenya School of Government where he also delivered a lengthy speech on the reforms in the security sector.

Shortly after making his remarks, the President asked journalists to switch off their equipment and leave saying "their work was done".

"Sasa si muzime hizo vitu zenu na muende? Kazi imeisha (Now you switch off your equipment and go. Your work is done)" - President Uhuru Kenyatta stated.

However, PSCU's Director of Digital Communication Dennis Itumbi shortly took to his twitter account, offering an explanation for the President's rather unique order.

"That included @PSCU_Digital - the officers were getting into a closed door meeting. Nothing wrong at all," Itumbi stated.
