Kenyans on Friday took to social media to express their frustrations with President Kenyatta’s administration over unfulfilled pledges and poor state of the nation.
Using hashtag #DearUhuruKenyatta, online users highlighted the various promises that the Jubilee government made but are yet to be fulfilled and the many challenges Kenyans are experiencing today.
The main issues Kenyans on Twitter mentioned include poor economy, unemployment, high cost of living, corruption scandals and over borrowing, among others.
Here are some of the tweets;

@cbs_ke noted: “On Sunday a mother and daughter drowned in Likoni and the Kenya Navy and Coast Guards did not act immediately. But we are seeing the Air Force and Navy practicing their skills to show to the world how good they are during the Mashujaa Day.”
