Kenyans on Twitter have been pondering on an online article that chides President Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime and the influence of the Kenyatta family.
The article, The man who sold a country, was published on Thursday on owaahh.com.
It’s scathing criticism of the president caught the attention of Kenyans online who agreed with the opinions of the author and shared it widely on Twitter, making it a top trend.
“We have normalised nonsense, and our own misery, and this needs to stop. We are the adults now, sadly,” the author of the article concludes.
The writer builds up a narration from a ride on the new Madaraka Express train, comparing it to the old train that was rusty and chaotic. The influence of the Kenyatta family and the piling national debt are also highlighted.
The article was published a day after a new report revealed that President Kenyatta will accumulate nearly Sh2.13 trillion in more national debt by the time his final term ends in August 2022.
Kenyans online gave their perspectives on the interesting bits of the article.

The man who sold a country article should be put in every Kenyan house like a Portrait. Children should recite every word in it to never lose their ways like their parents did #WanjikuReferendum

The next time you are in a polling station please remember that both your tribe and mine will face the same challenges after casting your vote.
You are no better than me.

A line from "The Man Who Sold A Country" reads
"If Zambia and Sri Lanka don't suffice as an example about what it means to mortgage a country then nothing ever will. In the next decade many other nations will have to bow to China's predatory debt conquest"

"The Man Who Sold a Country"
If Kenya was married to Uhuru Kenyatta, and everything he represents as a man and a president, it would be the spouse who hurts, who is emotionally abused, physically abused, threatened with death, distracted with relatives and reckless debts' Deep😭

The man who sold a country by @Owaahh
This is an article that should be spread in all WhatsApp groups. Kenya the enlightenment is coming and one day the elite who have run this country aground through robbery of public resources will be held accountable for their deeds.
