Influential blogger Pauline Njoroge has ridiculed Kenya Kwanza brigade after it criticised President Uhuru Kenyatta ahead of his address to Mt Kenya on Sunday evening.

A tweet on the State House Kenya feed read; "His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta will this evening be hosted on radio and television stations that broadcast in Central Kenya dialects for a live interview at State House, Nairobi."

The interview will be streamed live on Kameme FM, Kameme TV, Inooro FM, Inooro TV, Meru TV, Coro FM, Wimwaro FM, and Gukena FM, among other stations.

Leaders and supporters of Deputy President William Ruto protested the move claiming Uhuru was planning to use the vernacular media stations to campaign for his "project" Raila Odinga of Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party when the official campaign period had been closed.

Murang'a Senator Irungu Kang'ata and former State House speech writer Eric Ng'eno were among UDA leaders who accused the President of intending to break the law by campaigning in less than 48 hours to election day.

"Kenyatta is the Azimio chairman. He is going to be making crude, divisive and desperately inappropriate appeals on the eve of the election, against the law," Ng'eno said.

Njoroge, who is affiliated to Azimio, mocked Ruto's camp saying they should not worry about Uhuru's interview since Mt Kenya residents would shun it.

"Tangatanga guys, I can assure you that not a single Kikuyu, Meru or Embu will tune in to those radio stations. Hakuna hata mmoja ataskiza hiyo interview. So relax," Njoroge said.

"If you believe this interview is of no consequence and it will not sway your voters, why complain then? Why even post or comment about it? Si you just let him go there waste his time with the media houses that have invited him, since it will have no impact besides his one vote," she added.
