In recent news, reports circulating online about a planned Thanksgiving tour organized by former Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta in the Mt Kenya region have been denied by Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni. According to Kioni, he was not aware of any such plans, dismissing the widely circulated rumors as unfounded.
The reports suggested that Uhuru Kenyatta intended to embark on a tour in his home region in November, aiming to express gratitude for the unwavering support the region had shown him during his 10-year term as the President of Kenya. These rumors gained traction on various social media platforms, sparking curiosity and speculation among the public.
Furthermore, there were additional rumors circulating that former Prime Minister Raila Odinga would accompany Uhuru Kenyatta during these tours, although these claims remain unverified.
Kioni’s denial came after these reports emerged online, putting an end to the growing anticipation regarding the former president’s public appearance. The timing of these rumors coincided with the public appearance of former First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at the Annual Round Square International Conference (RSIC) hosted by Brookhouse Schools. It’s worth noting that Uhuru Kenyatta himself had not made any public appearances in recent months, with his last sighting being on August 5, during his visit to President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda in his capacity as a peace envoy to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
