Anxiety as KIONI discusses UHURU’s intended tour of Mt. Kenya to thank villagers for their support of his 10-year rule


Former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s scheduled Thanksgiving trip in the Mt. Kenya region has been denied by Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni.

Kioni indicated yesterday that he was not aware of the widely publicised plans.

Kioni was replying to web allegations that the former Head of State planned a tour of his home region in November this year to thank the region for its support during his 10-year reign.

Various stories also said that former Prime Minister Raila Odinga would accompany Uhuru on the visits.

On Wednesday, reports of Uhuru hosting a tour in his backyard went viral on various social media platforms.

Notably, the reports came just two days after former First Lady Margaret Kenyatta made her first public appearance at the Brookhouse Schools’ Annual Round Square International Conference (RSIC).

In recent months, the former Head of State has made no public appearances. He was last seen in public on August 5, when he met Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni in his capacity as Democratic Republic of the Congo peace envoy.

Museveni and Uhuru reviewed the rising tensions in eastern DRC, as well as the status of peace talks between rival parties.

His final public appearance in Kenya was on Monday, July 24, when he met with media editors behind closed doors at his Caledonia residence near the State House.

At the time, he spoke of police invading his eldest son, Jomo Kenyatta’s, home as part of ongoing investigations into unauthorized firearm ownership.

He also indicated that he will travel to the United Kingdom for a family vacation.
