Kenya: Kanze Dena Responds to Queries About Kenyatta's Whereabouts

President Uhuru Kenyatta at his office.

State House Spokesperson, Kanze Dena has finally responded to queries from concerned Kenyans on the whereabouts of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Speaking during an interview on Radio Maisha on Monday morning, Kanze said the Head of State is 'present' and working on different matters.

Kanze expressed her shock by the concerns from Kenyans over the president's 'absence' from the public eye since his trip to China last month, stating the the president held an executives meeting on Friday, May 3, and statement made on the same.

WORKING ON ISSUES

"I'm shocked that people say they haven't seen the president since he left China, yet on 3rd of this month he had a meeting with executives from Global Fund and there was a statement about it," Kanze said in a tweet on State House's Twitter handle.

"The President is around, it doesn't mean that because he is not seen in public he is not there, he has an office where he goes every day and he is working on several things," Kanze further said.

UHURU'S WHEREABOUTS

Kanze blamed herself for the breakdown in communication between State House and Kenyans but promised frequent updates from State House to media and Kenyans moving forward

"I agree that the communication from my side as the State House Spokesperson has had a setback, and I accept that a mistake was made, but I am focused and I am going to make things right and share information more frequently with the media and the public," she said.

Kanze's response follows queries from Kenyans on social media at the weekend on the president's whereabouts using the hashtag #FindPresidentUhuru.
