Uhuru Kenyatta Says Ghanaians Disrespected Him By Stating on Brochure That He Was Ghanaian President
The celebration of Ghana’s 59th Independence Day yesterday ended with so many things to talk about – some positive and some negative.
Trending on social media currently is the Independence Day celebration brochure. Interestingly, it is not trending because of its design. Neither is it going viral because it contains any useful information that will help humanity. Rather, the brochure contains several mistakes which makes one wonder if there exist no proofreaders at the presidency.
One of such major gaffes committed by whoever was in charge of printing the brochure was listing Uhuru Kenyatta as the President of Ghana instead of Kenya.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, speaking on Kenya Television Network (KTN), expressed displeasure at the incident.
Answering a question about how he felt after seeing the mistake, President Kenyatta said he felt bad. According to him, Ghanaians, especially President John Dramani Mahama disrespected him by stating that he was Ghana’s president.
To him, it was a deliberate effort to rip him off the things he has achieved for his country, Kenya.
“I’ve transformed Kenya so much ever since I became the president. Ghana cannot compare itself to Kenya in terms of development. Listing me as the President of Ghana means you are downgrading me. I cannot be the President of this corrupt country. I request the government of Ghana to render an unqualified apology for tainting my image,” he said.
