President Uhuru Kenyatta hit back at politicians who recently attacked his mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta telling them to insult their own mothers instead.
Speaking in Ruaka while on a visit to Kiambu on Wednesday, Uhuru indirectly told MPs Johanna Ng’eno and Oscar Sudi to leave Mama Ngina Kenyatta alone.
“Wale watu washenzi wanaenda huko wakitukana mama yangu, waambieni wakatukane mama zao wachaane na mama yangu (the foolish people insulting my mother, tell them to insult their mothers instead and leave mine alone,” President Uhuru said.
The President was in Kiambu to inspect a road project that will connect Nairobi, Kiambu and Murang’a counties.
President Kenyatta: “…Tell these fools of yours to go insult their mothers and leave my mother alone..”
