The state commendation made on Tuesday during the Jamhuri fete has drawn sharp criticism with majority of Kenyans saying that some of those commended did not deserve to be recognized.

Speaking in Mavoko Town on Wednesday, Mavoko MP Patrick Makau slammed president Uhuru Kenyatta over state commendation made on Tuesday during Jamhuri day.

Mr. Makau now wants the law reviewed to ensure that only deserving Kenyans are recognized for their roles in nation building.

The Wiper MP said that majority of the people recognized on Tuesday did not deserve the commendations.

“It is embarrassing that instead of awarding and recognizing people who merit and who have made an impact, Uhuru decided to recognize propagandists and undeserving people for the state commendation,” he said.

The legislator added that Jubilee administration is taking Kenyans for a ride.

He said that the country has hardworking and committed citizens whose roles and impact in various fields need to be recognized and not jokers.

Among the individuals commended who Kenyans feel did not deserve the recognition are blogger Robert Alai, singer Ben Githae, Citizen Reporter Jacky Maribe, ‘Githeri Man’ and Digital Director at the Office of the President Dennis Itumbi among others.

The state commendation recognizes people who have made an impact in their various fields .
