You won’t progress by insulting Uhuru, opposition told

Nairobi - State House spokesman, Manoah Esipisu has urged the opposition to stop hurling insults at President Uhuru Kenyatta saying it won’t give them political mileage.
Speaking in Nairobi on Wednesday, Esipisu said the opposition should indulge with the President in a civilised way because he is willing, instead of continuously hurling insults at him.
“If members of opposition think they will progress by holding 20 press conferences a week to shout at the President, then they are totally wrong.
“The President has always said he is open to discuss any ideas and too much shouting and hurling insults won’t solve anything,” Esipisu said.

Esipisu also shielded Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaiserry from attacks following the arrest of a journalist who published a story that highlighted questionable spending in his ministry.
Esipisu said the CS should be commended for the good job he has done since he assumed office and be given necessary support to carry out his duties instead of being condemned over the incident.
“Nkaissery has done well with security, and we need to support him on that. He was knocked quite a bit about the arrest of a journalist. I think he is just concerned about national security and if he sees any threat he is inclined to act,” Esipisu said.
According to Esipisu, the country’s defense budgets are sensitive and exposing the whole country to the enemy.
“We cannot have our enemies knowing what we are doing in the security sector by publishing such sensitive information,” Esipisu stated.
