Since the president signed into law the controversial finance bill 2018, Kenyans have made it their daily duty to express their disappointments on the president’s social media pages using some not-so-kind words.
The online backlash is so dire that it is speculated the president did not post about his travel to New York until he got there for fear of mean comments.
The comments started streaming in when the president’s official accounts shared a picture of him signing the bill into law:
I REGRET VOTING FOR YOU!

Your promises so far mean nothing. You have signed this finance bill into law. Have you considered its effects on your people? The crime rate going, cost of living going up!!! Did you ever consider recovering the monies that were stolen while under your rule?

You've failed us Mr President. No legacy left for you.

Even Njugush, the comedian, was not left behind:
Tumezoea….mdomo tu!!!!! Wish Ungekua na hii haraka ya kusign kufight hii corruption …

Things took a turn when the president sent condolences to Tanzania after a ferry capsized and killed hundreds of people. Kenyans had a few things to say:
On behalf of the people of Tanzania our most sincere condolences to our brothers @kot and our dear neighbor of the republic of kenya following the capsizing of their wallets through taxation at their Parliament

Point of correction Mr president, you ceased speaking for Kenyan from yesterday, try Chinese people.

The last time i allowed you to act on my behalf, you borrowed heavily from China and allowed them take Kenyan jobs, you taxed me heavily, your brothers and sisters drained NYS and other parastatals under your watch. I wont risk again sending you to act on my behalf again.
