Kenya Media Spin: Doubts Of Whether Uhuru Kenyatta Met Prime Minister David Cameron Emerge
Doubts are emerging over news reports by mainstream media that
President Uhuru Kenyatta held talks with United Kingdom Prime Minister
David Cameron. A close review of all video footage being screened
captures H.E. Kenyatta in a meeting with Foreign Secretary William
Hague. No credible picture or even a Photoshop of Kenyatta holding talks
with Premier Cameron is on circulation either by local or international
United Kingdom is a country that is governed largely by tradition,
they dont even have a written constitution but just statues and the
common law tradition. The protocol as per tradition is that state
visitors usually meet the Prime Minister at his official residency-
Downing street number 10, and journalists including cameramen are
allowed to take photos before (inside the office0 and after the meeting
(outside the gate-with visible branding number 10 downing street.
Not even the British giant- the BBC have any pictures despite
reporting that H.E Kenyatta was scheduled to meet Prime Minister
Suspicion is also fuelled by the NTV report that President Kenyatta
met Prime Minister Cameron first before meeting William Hague- well, in
pure protocol terms the president should have met William Hague first
and then proceed to meet Premier Cameron.
Note: Upon arrival in London President Kenyatta was received by
junior officers accompanied by the Kenya High Commissioner to United
Kingdom Amb. Ephraim Ngare.
Unless there is a proof of such a meeting, Kenyans should only
believe/know that our dear President only managed to hold talks with
Foreign Secretary William Hague. If Kenyatta held any talks with Premier
Cameron then it must have been at the sidelines of the Somali
conference- BUT then how come there are NO photos?, why the secrecy? the
PPS however gave a detailed press release of the said meeting.
FACT : Uhuru DID NOT VISIT downing street number 10 as per the United
Kingdom’s tradition of welcoming state visitors, the reports were part
of the bigger PR.
It was indeed essential contact
