President Uhuru Kenyatta flew back into the country Tuesday evening from an official visit to Abu Dhabi.
However, Kenyans expressed their anger over his trip following the killings of 28 people by Al-Shabaab in Mandera in their comments on pictures of the trip posted on President Kenyatta's official Facebook page.
Julius Kagiri Kimani's post read in part: “All these pictures you keep posting on FB smacks of PR at best and deception at worst. With respect Mr President, Al-Shabaab/Terrorist groups have been causing havoc in Kenya for a long while now. We want to see results/we want to see security."
Maggie Nyash said, “We want two national id cards, i.e., Margaret Nyambura and Margaret Khadija Muhammad. Thanks”
Here are some other comments:
Charles Ade Ngare: “President Uhuru please check on the security of the country or we will all be in national mourning in weeks to come.”
Alex Karanja Njoroge: “Mr. President, and what are we doing about domestic terrorism on our women by our very own men stripping women!”
According to the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU), President Kenyatta held talks with leaders from Jordan and the United Arab Emirates on security, combating terrorism and stemming radicalisation.
President Kenyatta met King Abdullah II of Jordan and discussed threats posed by terrorism to Kenya and the Middle East.
The President also held talks with Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.
Their meeting focused on the latest techniques in surveillance and other technologies UAE uses in ensuring security.
"The plane carrying the President and his entourage touched down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport shortly after 9pm," a statement by PSCU stated.
On arrival, the Head of State was received by Deputy President William Ruto and other government officials.
