President Uhuru Kenyatta seems to have lost one loyal follower on Twitter, who until very recently was his staunchest defender.
The tweep, by the user name Wess Kym, is now calling on Kenyans to boycott the forthcoming Madaraka Day celebrations to be held in Meru on June 1 so as to make the president feel the pain of addressing an empty stadium.
The tweep’s gripe with the president appears to be recent corruption scandals that have rocked the Jubilee government in recent days.
I propose a Boycott of Madaraka Day and the president will definately feel the pain of addressing an empty stadium. Hata wakitoa pesa tukule na tusiende

This is in stark contrast to earlier posts on the user’s timeline stretching back to early last year.
During the political campaigns in the run up to last year’s general elections, the tweep seemed to see nothing wrong in President Kenyatta.
At one point he even referred to the president as ‘a true man anointed by God’ while also lauding his skills in ‘hustling for votes’.
This time were are woke. No cooperation whatsoever. We will support the Kafment. No demos…erections are over. We want development ???

Kenyans on Twitter have however been quick in reminding the tweep of his past ‘romance’ with the president.
Why?Why interfere with the God’s chosen one?

You must be out of your damn mind.

Other than a boycott we need to get this looters out of office. We also need to stop paying taxes so they have nothing to loot.
