President Uhuru has hit out at MPs Oscar Sudi (Kapseret) and Johanna Ng’eno (Emurua Dikirr) for throwing insults at his mother, Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
Speaking on Thursday, Uhuru warned Sudi and Ng’eno, who are close allies of Deputy President William Ruto, against further attacks on his mother, adding that they should insult their own mums instead.
“Wale watu washenzi wanaenda huko wakitukana mama yangu, waambieni wakatukane mama zao wachaane na mama yangu (the silly people insulting my mother, tell them to insult their mothers instead,” Uhuru said.
Uhuru spoke during a stopover at Ruaka area where he has gone to inspect a road project that will connect three counties; Nairobi, Kiambu, and Murang’a.
Sudi and Ng’eno made the alleged insulting remarks directed at Uhuru and the former First Lady early this week.
Their remarks sparked countrywide outrage with a section of leaders among them women demanding an apology from the two. On Wednesday, MP Sudi said he has nothing to apologize, insisting he did not insult anyone.
“I was very surprised to see so many people agitated that I referred to women’s breasts, it is even in the bible, that was not an insult, I will apologize once people show me where I went wrong,” he said.
Following his remarks, MP Ng’eno was arrested from his home on Monday on allegations of incitement to violence. He was released on Thursday on a Sh2 million bond, a surety of the same amount, or an alternative cash bail of Sh1 million.
