Why ‘Congratulations Mheshimiwa’ hashtag has everyone talking

Kenyans have taken to micro-blogging site, Twitter, to call out leaders for failing to fulfill their election pledges – in full or in part – , just over ten months since they were elected or re-elected to office.

Using a sarcastic hashtag, “Congratulations Mheshimiwa”, Kenyans online highlighted some of the abandoned development promises.

Others faulted the leaders, including MPs and Senators, for falling back to politicking, when the Nation direly needs services such as infrastructural development, health improvement and education, among others, to be rendered.

EDAILY samples a few of Kenyans’ comments under the now-popular hashtag.
