Tension is high in Kibera, Kisumu and other CORD strongholds following a tweet by Uhuru Kenyatta’s K24 TV assuring followers that the Supreme Court will dismiss the election petition filed Raila Odinga.
The controversial tweet read “@K24Tv Supreme Court ends hearing…FINALLY Tomorrow in their judgement they will uphold the elections – April 9th holiday”.
There was Immediate condemnation on twitter and Facebook with many CORD supporters saying the tweet is a confirmation that Uhuru may have bought his way to power, others claiming the tweet must have been sanctioned from above and may be revealing more than what Kenyans know.
A spot check in Kibera and Kisumu confirmed tension was high, with residents assembling in groups.
Will update more as the story develops.
