Why Kibaki was a nationalist we never had

To be honest I never heard Kibaki speaking in Kikuyu either in public function radio stations or even when campaigning. He tried to project himself as a Kenyan in all fronts. On the other hand Uhuru has sold a public image that he is a Kikuyu president and he is fighting for kingship of his region when he should be retiring. One wonders why

The president is a symbol of national unity so he should try his level best not to appear tribal in any way. Everyone knows he is a gikuyu and can speak the language. What is he trying to prove or achieve? It makes it seem like there is special message he wants to communicate to his fellow tribesmen and not the nation as a whole. Other tribes take it as a special treatment of the kikuyus leading to burning of more bridges rather than building.
He is the president and everyone wants to know what he is up to. His addressing of only the kikuyus makes others feel alienated.

Kenyans have too much time on their hands instead of working hard to build the nation. Unless he came to spew tribal hatred or any other evil thing, he hurt no one addressing anyone they way he deemed fit.

That is the language that gets you votes when you have nothing to offer

The Kikuyu elites created 41 vs 1 in 2007 and they want to do it again

Politics is about perception not truth/logic. It's what makes a chokora think ruto is his equal/fellow hustler. Other tribes feel that kikuyus have always been favored by kikuyu presidents. Uhuru addressing kikuyu only instead of the whole nation entrenches the perception. This foments tribal hatred, the repercussions of which come to fore during elections.
