Kenyans have taken to twitter to share their views of the country with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Currently trending at the number one spot on Twitter, Kenyans are using the hashtag #DearUhuruKenyatta to air grievances and opinions on how the country is being run.
One recurring comment was on the appointment of former Othaya Member of Parliament Mary Wambui as head of the National Employment Authority (NEA).
Many social media users expressed outrage at the move, opining that the opportunity should have been given to someone younger given the high unemployment rate among the youth. Others questioned whether she landed the job on merit.
Here are the sentiments from Kenyans:
I find it very hard to pray to God about this country, I actually don’t usually know what to include and what to leave out.
If I don’t say I most times feel so broken and helpless when some news come to light... I would be lying — Nyokabi Mburu Kimani (@Nyokabi_Kimani) October 15, 2019
#DearUhuruKenyatta Is it true that even after jobless graduates posted their academic credentials online you still went ahead to appoint Mary Wambui to head the National Employment Authority?Mtu anafaa kuwa anakula bonus. — Mariga For Kibra (@MukhutsiKe) October 15, 2019
When Mary Wambui was mentioned as the new chairperson of National Employment Authority, I lost all my ability to can. How can such a 'youth' head a very useless organization? It's more of rewarding old camels. #DearUhuruKenyatta. — BRAVIN™ (@ItsBravin) October 15, 2019
