Kenya cautions foreign donors against meddling in its affairs

It would be best if you were not telling us how to run our affairs, President Uhuru Kenya warned the unnamed donors.

Speaking in Nairobi during the official commissioning of G47 Ugatuzi towers that will host county government offices on Friday, December 4, 2020, the head of state reminded the alleged donors interfering with Kenya’ affairs that the East African nation has its owners and it should not be dictated on how to carry out its errands.

“Please, I ask you to refrain from interfering in or telling us or trying to direct us in which way we should go.”

“You must always remember that Kenya has its own eyes and its own eyes are 50 million Kenyans,” Uhuru said.

Uhuru told off the said donors to solve the problems bedeviling their countries instead of focusing on Kenya’s issues.

“Do not interfere because we shall not allow for you to dictate to us which direction to be taken; that should be up to Kenyans,” he added.

However, he appreciated the donors and development partners for their continuous support to help Kenya achieve its development goals.

He further asked them to join the country in supporting her endeavors.
