Head of State Dances in Dab of Shame with Celebrities As Kenyans Die

As Kenyans die in hospitals due to the ongoing doctors strike, as our public universities close down due to the ongoing strike by the dons and as more than 2.7 million Kenyans at the brink of dying due to starvation, President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta saw it best to celebrate and make a toast for the ongoing situation in the country by shaking his leg with celebrities at Statehouse.

It is now 68 days since doctors went on a nationwide strike. The media long lost count of the number of poor Kenyans who have died from the effect of the ongoing strike. The Head of State chose to remain mute, choosing to make the registration of voters a priority. For the first time in the history of this country, as doctors were on strike, dons on strike, biting drought but the only thing that the government saw as an emergency was voter registration.

Just this month, we lost more than 50 Kenya Defense Forces officers in Somalia. First, the government made it look like a non-issue, saying that no soldier had died, then saying that only nine had died and later saying that more than 50 had died. In such incidences, the Head of State, who is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces in Kenya was supposed to issue a statement and even sent condolence messages to family members of the soldiers who had died and give them a moral support. Did the Commander in Chief do that? No. He remained silent and the issue remained as though it had not happened. Voter registration campaign was more important than the petty issue of more than 50 soldiers dying.

At the moment, more than 2.7 billion Kenyans are at the brink of dying as a result of starvation. More than nine counties have been affected and people from these counties are always not sure of seeing the following day. As Kenyans suffer, Kenya chose to concentrate on campaigning for Ambassador Amina Mohammed for the position of the African Union Commission in Addis Ababa Ethiopia. It is said that hundreds of millions of shillings were used during this campaign and the candidate, with due respect, failed terribly.

Kenyans were shocked beyond repair when the Head of State, the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, the symbol of national unity and the face of Kenya, instead of trying to solve the problems that the country is facing, invited artists at Statehouse and shook his booty in enjoyment. On his twitter handle, our dear President posted the following:

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s misplaced priorities come days after Kenyans bitterly bashed the First Lady, Margaret Kenyatta when she called on Kenyans to register for her annual Beyond Zero half marathon. Kenyans felt that the mother of the nation was insensitive about the health issue and that it was like an insult for her to call on them to register and run to bring maternal death to beyond zero when Kenyans were busy dying beyond zero.

Kenyans, out of anger and frustrations, took to twitter with the hashtag #DabOfShame to remind the President of what the presidency means and the things he should do. Here are the top six of them:

Our forefathers said that when the gods want to destroy you, the first make you mad and the ancestors of Uhuru Kenyatta seem to be making him mad by each coming day. Anyway, let the Kenyans continue dying, let Kenyans continue being emaciated as hunger bites on and let the dab continue.
