A section of Kenyans on social media have criticized President Uhuru Kenyatta for ‘discriminating’ pupils of Titus Ngoyoni Memorial Primary School who he hosted at State House on August 4th.
The students were pictured posing for a photo with the president where some were standing and a few others squatting down on the front row.
Now the discrimination claims arose from how he treated a different bunch of students from the prestigious Pembroke House School a couple of weeks ago.
In the photo, the pupils were seen seated with Mr.Kenyatta on the first row with the rest standing behind in a composed manner.They were also accorded with a red presidential carpet.
Guys were quick to make a comparison of the two photos to show just unfair the students from the Marsabit County-based school were treated compared to their peers from Pembroke School.
State House Communications Director Dennis Itumbi denied the allegations terming them as propaganda by the opposition.He even tweeted this photo in defense:
Of course @Team_CORD you love making your perception a fact even when you are clearly skewed pic.twitter.com/UZ6vJcKMLe
