Go and in­sult your moth­ers and leave mine alone, Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta said on urs­day as he hit back at politi­cians who at­tacked for­mer First Lady Mama Ngina Keny­atta.

Go and in­sult your moth­ers and leave mine alone, Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta said on urs­day as he hit back at politi­cians who at­tacked for­mer First Lady Mama Ngina Keny­atta.

“I am on my way to in­spect a road down here... We are build­ing a road that will con­nect Nairobi... go through Ki­ambu... then Mu­rang’a and up to Ny­eri... I told you that I am only in­ter­ested in work...,” e Pres­i­dent said.

“Even if I am young, I have no prob­lem go­ing home as long as peo­ple see the work that I have done. ese fools who are go­ing around throw­ing in­sults, tell them to go in­sult their moth­ers and leave mine alone...”

Uhuru who was speak­ing in his Kikuyu di­alect said lead­ers must work on the unity and peace of the coun­try.

“I will not al­low my­self to speak in anger as I just want Kenyans to stay to­gether in peace,” he said on Wed­nes­day evening in Ruaka on the out­skirts on Nairobi.

“e coun­try will stay for­ever but we as peo­ple will one day not ex­ist,” the Pres­i­dent added.

His com­ments came af­ter Emu­rua Dikirir MP Jo­hanna Ng’eno and Kapseret MP Os­car Sudi were recorded ut­ter­ing un­savoury re­marks against the Pres­i­dent and the first fam­ily.

Ng’eno was later ar­rested on Mon­day evening by po­lice of­fi­cers over claims of in­cite­ment.

“You are not Kenya and Kenya is not Keny­atta’s or Mama Ngina’s land. is land be­longs to 47 mil­lion Kenyans, you can­not run it as you wish,” Ng’eno said in Trans Mara on Sun­day. He was re­leased from po­lice cus­tody on a Sh2 mil­lion bond by a Nakuru court on urs­day.

Later, MP Os­car Sudi also con­demned the war against his ally and Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam

Ruto, say­ing that the coun­try does not be­long to the Keny­at­tas.

But the DP urge for re­straint, say­ing lead­ers can­not at­tack one an­other’s fam­ily how­ever an­gered they felt.

A sec­tion of Kenyan lead­ers called upon their coun­ter­parts to re­frain from in­sults and abu­sive lan­guage ir­re­spec­tive of their po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tion ahead of the 2022 elec­tion.
