Mama Ngina Explains Why Uhuru Refused to Back DP Ruto

Former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta has pleaded with the people of the Mt Kenya region to follow the direction that her son, President Uhuru Kenyatta will take regarding the 2022 succession politics. 

Speaking in Gatundu on Tuesday, March 22, Mama Ngina urged Mt Kenya voters to follow Uhuru assuring them that he would never mislead them.  

She also noted that Uhuru had no issues with his deputy, William Ruto claiming that he refused to work with the latter leading to their fallout. 

“Follow what Uhuru tells you. He is your leader and cannot lead you to the wrong path. He had no problem with his deputy but when the deputy started bringing up issues and refused to work with him, what do you do?” She said.  

Mama Ngina also took issue with politicians who have been hurling insults at Uhuru noting that he would not respond to the same. 

“Let me tell those who are hurling insults we will just leave them to it. Let’s love each other because the country is ours,” she said.

This comes a month after Uhuru endorsed ODM leader Raila Odinga during a meeting with Mt Kenya leaders at the Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri.  

He added that he will have no problem supporting Deputy President William Ruto in future but only if he reforms.
