Government Spokesperson Col. Cyrus Oguna has refuted reports that President Kenyatta is set to take a one-month leave until January 15th.
Oguna through Twitter on Tuesday said a circular alleging that Uhuru would proceed on a 30-day holiday after this year’s Jamhuri Day celebrations on December 12th was fake.
The letter purported to have been written by the Foreign Affairs Ministry to all Heads of Diplomatic Missions and International Organizations claimed the President would unavailable for any public engagements or phone calls during the entire period unless they are emergencies.
“The ministry has the honor to inform you that H.E the President will not be available for any official/public engagements including phone calls unless they are emergencies,” the fake circular read.
It added that in case of an emergency, the request to the President should be made via Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary or his designated representative.
