Outgoing Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete has said there are more thugs in Kenya than his country Tanzania. Speaking while addressing a section of parliamentarians and politicians in Dagoreti, Kikwete said the type of thuggery, hooliganism and indiscipline experienced in Kenya especially during elections and political rallies, has never been witnessed in Tanzania.
He prayed that Kenya learns to emulate his country saying Tanzanians are the most peaceful, disciplined and educated people unlike Kenyans who think of stealing all the time. Kikwete reiterated that 80% of crimes in Tanzania are masterminded by Kenyans and he prays that Kenyans will learn to have some manners and know how to behave themselves.
“Most of the crimes in Tanzania are organized by Kenyans or even involves Kenyans and as neighbors, we must tell each other the truth. Many Kenyans have been arrested in Tanzania for various crimes and perhaps, that is why Tanzanians are reluctant in partnering with Kenya. Tanzanians fear that should they allow kenyans to walk freely in their country, they’ll be putting a lot of things at risk” Said the CCM leader.
Kikwete’s utterances did not go well with some of Kenya’s top political pundits who concluded that Kikwete came to mock Kenyans as he nears exit in less than two weeks time.
Meanwhile, Kenyans in twitter have launched war against Tanzania dubbed #someonetellKikwete to teach him a lesson as he retires.
