In this episode of What’s Up Africa, Ikenna Azuike hones in on the budding romance between Kenyan Presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta and running mate William Ruto. He also reminds us of how terrible Malawian President Joyce Banda is for irresponsibly cutting the government’s expenses by selling the Presidential Jet and government envoy vehicles. As Ikenna notes, “how dare she? The Presidential jet is cool!” Oh, we hope you’re catching the sarcasm
With Kenya’s Election coming up and today’s first ever presidential debate, Ikenna reminds us that there are still a number of questions surrounding Kenyatta and Ruto, particularly as they face ICC charges. As the episode juxtaposes the leadership of Kenyatta/Ruto to Joyce Banda, it does so while eliciting a few chuckles and necessary insight to Joyce Banda’s brave agenda to hold herself accountable to her fellow Malawians.
