When it was announced that Uhuru Kenyatta’s wife Margaret would be holding the Bible during the president’s swearing-in, Kenyans, always the ready to speculate, were at it again. There were rumours and suggestions on social media that Uhuru Kenyatta had refused to hold the Bible because he was a Freemason. Others claimed he was Illuminati.. Huh.
Uhuru doesn’t wanna touch the Holy Bible. Someone scream ILLUMINATI!!!!!! – Frank AllanoMichelle holds the bible for Obama, Margaret holds the bible for Uhuru, sema illuminati. – Sly MwauraUhuru is doing exactly what obama did, not holding the Bible up during his swearing in. But we all know obama is illuminati so. . . – Francis NgwataIlluminati is real “@iWateba: Why can’t Uhuru hold his own bible tho?” – Samie
I have asked my friend and wife Margret to hold the Bible together with me as I take the Oath of office on Tuesday; a tradition exercised in most countries of the world. I promised to uphold family values and by having her stand alongside me, we will not only be vowing individually as recognized by the Constitution but also collectively as recognized by our marriage vows also enshrined in the law. By holding the Bible, not for me but with me, as I take my Oath of Office, she will be committing herself to ensure she reminds me of my promise to the Kenyan people and also assuring Kenyans that family obligations will not interfere with my execution of duties as President.
