Since his return from Beijing, where he attended the China Road and Belt Forum, Uhuru went silent for the next couple of days, only to reappear on Monday.

Weda who defended the Head of State said that he might have been using the time to do some paperwork and reflecting on his job so far and his next move.

"He must have been doing some paperwork and reflecting on himself while giving Kenyans time and a reason to take guesses on what he is up to," he said.

Weda who doubles up as an advocate of the High Court was speaking in an interview on KBC English Service's The Big Conversation show on Wednesday morning.

He advised Kenyans to expect such retreats from the president at some point, nothing that he has nothing compelling him to stay in the public eye.

According to the commentator, Uhuru is almost no longer a politician, and cannot be compared to his Deputy William Ruto and opposition boss Raila Odinga.

"People should not expect the President to be speaking each and every day, he is not campaigning. Those campaigning are Ruto and Honorable Raila," he added.

Uhuru was accompanied by Raila to China, but Raila has remained active since his return.
