The Minister made this known through his Official Twitter handle @fkeyamo and the tweet reads…
- There are butterflies amongst us who think they’re birds. They shouted themselves hoarse against us during elections, yet the voters didn’t listen & nobody ‘silenced’ them. Is it after their ‘threat’ during elections is over that anyone would be interested in silencing them?
- This President has NO REASON to silence those already silenced by the roaring voices of 15m voters in the last 2 general elections. These tiny bad losers are rather the ones who want to silence the voices of those 15 million citizens & govt has a responsibility to prevent that
- The comedians among these butterflies are those who drag in the name of govt into their private predicaments to whip up public sympathy. How would govt turn the public against someone who didn’t have the public behind him in the first place? What is there to turn against him?
