• Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich became the topic of conversation after he stepped out at a President Uhuru Kenyatta’s press conference donning a pair of oversized trousers.

    The CS shocked Kenyans especially because he is known for his dapper suits.

    The President had called for the presser to announce the new price that the government would buy maize for.

    Rotich who was flanking the President did not look his best as the president was going about his address.

    “Joy Kinyua commented on the president’s Facebook post that “Hii trouser ya Rotich inakaa ndiyo itawekwa hiyo mahindi (It looks like Rotich’s trousers will be used to store the maize).”

    Boaz Kandie wrote, “I also direct that Mr Rotich be bought a new pair of trousers,may as many who are of the same opinion say hiiii”

    Another user wondered whether the tailor who made it had been arrested.

    In the address that was also graced by Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri, Uhuru also set the number of maize bags to be purchased at 2 million.

    Other Kenyans turned to ask the President why his Deputy William Ruto was absent from the press conference.

    They were concerned about his silence amidst the wrangles that threatened to destroy the Jubilee Party.
