According to the great critic of President William Ruto, the attendance is not as per the expectation considering that the president had a made a promise to everyone who would attend the event.
Dida argued that despite the promise to sponsor the attendees for a short course, Kenyans chose to skip the event.
He compared the event to those which were presided over by former President Uhuru Kenyatta and even the recent one by popular Pastor Ezekiel which he says had better attendance.
"To imagine there is a preacher who filled a stadium recently, to imagine that President Uhuru never paid anyone anything but his national events were always full." He claimed
"Then there is Nabii, with bribes and promises of free degrees for attendees. He is still talking to himself." He added.
