Karen Nyamu: “Politics may take a toll on the lungs, but I don’t understand why the journey of a retired President takes time for me to exhale. I voted for you twice and campaigned for you in 2017. You taught us many lessons, the most valuable being that a ‘Handshake’ government is a no-no! I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy birthday. You’re blessed and highly favored. May you find fulfillment in everything you do.”

Dr. Boni Khalwale: “Former President Uhuru Kenyatta, Happy birthday to you! Hope you’re enjoying life in retirement. Although we went different ways during your presidency, I cherish our friendship. With nostalgia, I remember how I hosted you and @WilliamsRuto (then Minister for Agriculture) in my home in Malinya after I retained my seat as MP for Ikolomani, in the hotly contested by-election of 2011. You left two indelible marks: 1. As Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, you released funds for the construction of Sigalagala Butere Road. It’s now complete. 2. You supported me financially in that by-election campaign. Welcome to Malinya for a drink, brother.”
