State House spokesperson Kanze Dena was on Monday morning forced to go public and clarify the matter saying Uhuru was present, in good health and working on serious issues affecting the county.
“The President is around, it doesn’t mean that because he is not seen in public he is not there, he has an office where he goes every day and he is working on several things,” she said
By showing up and assenting to the Bill, the Head of State has just confirmed Dena’s words that he is present and working.
