The family of a man who claims to be the late President Mwai Kibaki’s grandson has spoken.
Allan Makana made headlines last week with his theatrics following the death of the former Head of State.
On April 27, Makana caused a scene at Parliament Buildings after wailing uncontrollably while demanding to view the body of the late president.
Later on April 29 during Kibaki’s state funeral at the Nyayo National Stadium, the man stormed the stage and asked Archbishop Anthony Muheria to give him a chance to speak.
However, he was unfortunate as security guards whisked him away.
The family of Makana has since spoken on the same with his mother, Concephter Makana said she learnt about her son’s actions from neighbors.
She said she tried to reach him but she could not get ahold of him, adding that he left home after completing his secondary school education.
“My son left home in 2016 after completing his secondary education in 2015 at Sikusi boys high school, he told me that he is going to look for a job,” Concephter said.
She also dismissed claims that his son was related to Kibaki noting that he was mourning him for his great contribution since he benefited from free education in Kenya.
On the other hand, Makana’s uncles begged the government to set him free maintaining tha tthe behavior was unlike him.
“Hii tabia inatokana na group ambayo anatembea nayo. Hiyo tabia anatoa Nairobi lakini huku hakuwa na tabia mbaya
“I take this humble chance to ask the government to forgive our son and release him from the cell,” Charles Ndumba said.
