Nairobi - Kenyans had mixed feelings over the National Prayer Breakfast which took place in Nairobi.
The Prayer Breakfast took place Thursday at the high end Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi, attended by senior government officials led by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The opulence of the breakfast, amidst teething problems in the country, hunger, insecurity and other major issues was noted by Kenyans who took to various spaces such as social media to vent their anger.
Using the Twitter hash-tag #NationalHyenaBreakfast, Kenyans had a field day brandishing the said Breakfast Prayer, a meeting of the rich, eating their loot in public.
" They call it #NationalPrayerBreakfast while I think it is just #NationalHyenaBreakfast. Validating their gluttony with a word of prayer, Blogger Robert Alai ridiculed the meeting.
" The one book missing at this #NationalPrayerBreakfast is the BIBLE. That's coz it is #NationalHyenaBreakfast I.e #EliteReunionDay," another blogger, Dikembe Disembe commented.
Sheila Masinde was also unforgiving of the Prayer meetup.
" #NationalPrayerBreakfast aka#NationalHyenaBreakfast..why pretend 2 pray with mouths stuffed with croissants, bacon etc," she added.
" So the people who have attended the prayers will be given allowance , God hates oppression #NationalHyenaBreakfast," blogger Cyprian Nyakundi said.
Nana also on Twitter had a go at the Breakfast.
" Next time they should hold the meeting in Nadome, Yumbis, and Near Somali border. #NationalPrayerBreakfast #NationalHyenaBreakfast," she said.
Jackson Letangule, also on Twitter had harsh words to say of the attendees of the Prayer Breakfast.
" They don't have the interests of Kenyans at heart because if they did, they wouldn't milk tax payers dry #NationalHyenaBreakfast.
