Uhuru declines title
16 August 2013, 12:58
Gatundu - President Uhuru Kenyatta has declined to be referred to as 'Mtukufu Rais,' a title previously bestowed on retired president Daniel arap Moi.
Daily Nation reports that President Kenyatta cautioned Kiambu Senator Wamatangi during a rally at Gatundu Stadium on Wednesday to refer to him as Mheshimiwa Rais (Honourable President), as the title 'Mtukufu' is now obsolete.
In the past, politicians referred to the President in flowery language in a bid to outdo each other in pledging loyalty, a move that retired president Mwai Kibaki also publicly rejected.
