Former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenayatta has come out to defend her son President Uhuru Kenyatta on his decision to support Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
Speaking during a burial in Gatundu, Mama Ngina called for unity as she cited that the nation’s interest is at the President’s heart.
“The President cannot mislead you,” she said.
Mama Ngina referred to the Deputy President as a rebel who abandoned his duties leaving the President to work alone.
“When your deputy rebels, do you concentrate on him or continue with your work?You move on with your work,” she said.
She also accused politicians allied to DP Ruto of insulting the President leaving him with no choice than to work without him.
“The President cannot work with him because of the things he had done to him,” she furthered.
Mama Ngina however vowed not to retaliate to those who were insulting her family noting that they were not brought up appropriately.
“We will leave them if insulting others is what they were taught while growing up,” she said.
The President has in the recent past supported Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
