"President is Disrespectful to Kenyans" Sholei Slams Uhuru After State of Nation Address

During an interview with Trevor Ombinja on Citizen TV today December 1st, Uasin Gishu Women Representative Gladys Boss Sholei expressed how much upset he was about the president not mentioning the right things in his State of the Nation Address and the fact that he could not keep time.

According to her, Uhuru's speech was supposed to adhere to article 132 of the constitution which required him to update Kenyans on the measures taken to achieve the realisation of national values.

The president also stated that political instability is the most urgent problems Kenya is facing but according to Sholei that is not true. That Kenyans are mostly suffering from unemployment and poor economy.

On failure to observe time, Sholei said, "The worst of all he started his speech at 3:45pm yet all of us who have been in parliament know that the bell rings at around 2:10 pm and everyone should be seated by the time the speaker walks in with the president. So the president is disrespectful to Kenyans and the parliament because he could not do the simplest thing that shows discipline which is keeping time. And then his speech went on forever which was two hours twenty one minutes, I doubt anybody was listening."
