US Ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter on Thursday caused mixed reactions following his tweet on the 17th Annual National Prayer Breakfast.

In his tweet, the ambassador said that it was a good start that Kenyan leaders were praying for forgiveness for their sins of ripping off Kenyans in the prayer breakfast meeting.

He went on to say that it was a good start for the country as it looked forward to taking the path for prosperity, and closed his statement with the Hashtag #Stopthesethieves.

Kenyan leaders are praying and asking for forgiveness for the sin of thievery at the 17th annual National Prayer Breakfast. What a good start to take the nation on the path of prosperity the wananchi deserve. We must all do our part. #stopthesethieves,” said the Ambassador McCarter.

Kenyans then reacted to the Ambassador's remarks, some showing excitement on how he was straight forward, while others questioned the motive behind his tweet.

Here are the reactions;

President Uhuru

During the 17th National Prayer Breakfast held at Nairobi’s Safari Park Hotel, President Uhuru Kenyatta asked leaders to not only talk about things, but be practical about what they said at the Prayer Breakfast.

He went on to say that if the leaders put into action their words, Kenya would be a whole different country in five years, insisting that it is all Kenyans want.
