Kenya City Billionaire Dares Uhuru-Raila in Brutal Rant
City tycoon Paul Kobia tore into President Uhuru Kenyatta in a hard-hitting rant as he vowed to block the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) meeting scheduled for Meru on Saturday, February 29.
In a video released on Tuesday, February 25, Kobia faulted President Kenyatta whom he accused of being the main stumbling block in the aborted nomination of Ann Kananu Mwenda, who hails from Meru, as the deputy governor of Nairobi.
He warned Uhuru and opposition leader Raila Odinga not to set foot in Meru to popularize the BBI report, promising to co-ordinate serious protests against the planned rally.
“Jubilee refused to give her a clearance certificate. That means the party leader, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, has rejected Ann Kananu Mwenda as deputy governor of Nairobi.
“He is the party leader and he is silent. He supports bringing BBI to Meru but when it comes to Ann Kananu Mwendwa it becomes political. I’m hearing that she’s Sonko’s person, why are they inciting people? Let them know we reject that BBI,” he asserted.
