Premium tears – Kenyans react to Uhuru extending cessation and curfew days

The 6th of June was a much-awaited day with Kenyans set to know whether or not Uhuru would lift the curfew and cessation. Memes on how citizens would react if Uhuru broke the internet trending for several days before the major announcement.

However, contrary to what many hoped, Uhuru increased cessation of movement and curfew by an additional 30 days. This was saddening news, although he set the new curfew time at 9 PM two hours later than the original curfew time.

Uhuru further acknowledged that he saw the memes circulating on social media. However, he insisted that him lifting the cessation and curfew is not freedom as the netizens would like. Instead, he addressed it as hurting the country.

The president emphasized that there was no way his government would do anything that would hurt Kenyans. According to Uhuru, he would rather have the country on lockdown for a whole year if it means it will protect Kenyans.

He further added that he reached this decision after a lot of consultation with a team of experts.

Kenyans react to Uhuru’s speech.

As usual, Kenyans took to Twitter discussing the debate. Some tweeps were happy with how Uhuru acknowledged the meme community in Kenya. Some even suggested that the president would log in to Twitter so he can enjoy the new memes on his speech.

Although Kenyans create memes on Uhuru, it was never really known that the president actually sees them. Some tweeps even went a step further and calculated the total hours before the curfew and cessation ends and compared it to the previous one.

As expected, memes on the president and his speech flooded Twitter. The topic is currently trending at number one under the hashtag #UhuruKenyatta.

Here are some of them. You can also follow the trend here.
