Kenyans beg Uhuru not to sign any loan while in New York

By CHAD KITUNDU September 26th, 2018 2 min read

Kenyans have pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta not to sign any loan during his ongoing visit in New York for the the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 73).

Some angry Kenyans do not even want to see the president return home, a sign of his low ratings after he signed the Finance Bill, 2018, into law and effectively increased the cost of living.

President Kenyatta left the country quietly on Friday night without the official pomp that often accompanies his departure.

On Tuesday, he made the ‘mistake’ of updating Kenyans on his activities at the UN General Assembly.

His tweet did not elicit the expected response.

Kenyans quickly advised him to keep his engagements in New York to himself; just like he had ‘sneaked out of the country’ for the trip.


They also warned Mr Kenyatta not to commit Kenya to any other foreign loan.
