The Woman Rep for Murang’a County Sabina Chege has rubbished reports that she was heckled during the Embrace rally at Kimorori grounds last Friday.
Reports had it that Sabina Chege was moved to tears after she was booed by a section of the crowd chanting pro-Ruto slogans.
But speaking on Sunday, Ms Chege explained that she broke down in tears because she was overwhelmed by President Uhuru’s “love”.
During the Friday event which was attended by Youth and Gender Affairs Chief Administrative Secretary Naomi Shebesh, Ms Priscilla Nyokabi of the National Gender and Equality Commission and elected women from across the country, Uhuru’s administration distributed goodies worth millions of shillings.
“I dare anyone with a video clip of me being booed to produce it. I was never heckled; I was only overwhelmed by the love that the President has for the great county,” said Ms Chege told journalists.
Adding, “Receiving vaccination machines worth Sh36 million and cheques for women and youth worth Sh25 million is not a simple joke. I was overcome by the love and cried upon realising that there are people who just want to rubbish the development agenda in the county and in the region.”
She spoke at Kahatia Primary School in Kiharu where the Sabina Foundation sponsored a free medical camp that benefited over 1,000 people in the tea growing area.
Sabina Chege further noted that she was moved by women leaders elected on different political parties joining her to launch the development projects.
“It has never happened [that] leaders elected on Jubilee, ODM, Wiper, Kanu and others sharing a podium in Murang’a. Expressing support [for] the head of State is magnificent and that’s why I cautioned the youth not to embarrass me. This was in reference to an incident in Kandara where a church service was disrupted when Kiambu Woman Representative rose to speak, and as a matter of fact, the youth never embarrassed me,” she said.
