A selfie of President Uhuru, Deputy William Ruto , former Citizen TV host Julie Gichuru and Caroline Mutoko has got tongues wagging, prompting the two ladies to come out and defend themselves.
The photo was taken at the recently held Jubilee Party fundraising dinner at a local hotel where Julie and Caroline were said to have been the emcee’s for the function.
It is trending online and was also used on the front pages of local dailies, eliciting mixed reaction from online users with some expressing pleasure at the photo, while others criticized the two ladies.
The criticism has prompted the no-nonsense Caroline to speak up.
Here’s what she said:
“If I was born of a scarcity mentality and I woke up on a Sunday to all that awesomeness on front page of Sunday Nation, and I wasn’t proud of it even me why lie I would be like that. I would get to social media and get nasty because how dare they and why those two, why us? because we are awesome. Julie and I are great at what we do”.
“But I don’t think that is even in contention is it? What is truly in contention is one thing; how much did they get paid, isn’t it? That’s the only thing that’s bothering you isn’t it? Ok so let me tell you something. Having Julie as co-emcee for the friends of Jubilee fundraiser dinner was awesome. because we speak the same language”.
“We didn’t get paid. It’s something we decided, nobody decided it for us. The only time we mentioned it publicly is at the dinner table and we clearly told the President we had forfeited our pay as a gift to him for his fundraiser”
The bold and charming Caroline goes on to dare her haters to pick up the Emceeing job for the upcoming NASA Party Campaign Fundraiser Dinner and even charge for it.
“Nasa is about to have a fundraiser. I dare you, I dare you to try and charge them. They will be like Caroline and Julie don’t charge, who are you”. Then the bile will start all over again. Which goes to show you can’t please people. If we had been paid you would have been bitter and now that we haven’t been paid, some people are now saying that we spoilt it for them”.
In her You Tube Channel, Caroline adds
“Now that you know we didn’t get paid and that was the only thing bugging you, jealousy was destroying you, calm down, untangle your necklace swallow the bile in your throat before it kills you and get back to life”.
