Former President Uhuru Kenyatta was pictured on Monday making calls after he laid bare his frustrations during the DRC peace talks in Nairobi.
Uhuru who is the peace facilitator revealed that the organisers of the Nairobi Three Process peace talks made underhand dealings and shortchanged the participants.
He was seen using his phone as his bodyguard looked around for any lurking threat.
“What does not have good planning cannot end well. We had Nairobi One, Two and finished well. But I am sorry to say that those who planned Nairobi Three have goofed,” he said.
“We cannot be here talking about peace with people from the jungle, who have walked to come here and their welfare is not catered for.”
An angered Uhuru asked that the meeting be suspended until Tuesday.
"Our people who we know and are the organisers, know that we have enough funds because I was part of the people who were raising it. The funds do not belong to them but it is to bring peace in Congo,” he said.
Uhuru said when the participants will resume today, their problems will be solved.

“Those involved, do not think peace is something to play with. Peace is no joke, they should be here and if not, I will stand and tell the whole world not to give these people money again," he said.
Uhuru said he will report the organisers to their bosses, who he did not mention.
“Let’s meet tomorrow at 1 pm. I will even report them to their bosses. They should bring what is yours here,” he said.
"Maybe they think I am no longer powerful but I have the ear and attention of their leaders so they better bring your rightful dues.”
Uhuru further demanded that the organisers should return what they took.
“Nawauliza kwa aibu, allow us plan ourselves so that we meet again tomorrow,” he added.
Uhuru is expected to close the third inter-Congolese peace dialogue which has been going on in Nairobi.
The peace talks started on November 28.
Uhuru who is the East African Community (EAC) peace facilitator has been leading the process which has seen a section of M23 rebels attend as well as civil rights groups, community and religious leaders.
