MP Gladys Shollei Slams Mama Ngina over Uhuru’s Upbringing

Uasin Gishu Woman Rep Gladys Shollei has launched a scathing attack on former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta over the remarks on the upbringing of politicians who insult President Uhuru Kenyatta. 

In an interview on Wednesday, March 23, Shollei took issue with Mama Ngina over her remarks noting that the President also tends to attack those who do not agree with him. 

To substantiate her argument, Shollei referred to the 2017 General Elections where Uhuru attacked ODM leader Raila Odinga and called him all sorts of names. 

“She seemed to be defending the President and said that people who talk badly are not raised well

“I think she needs to be reminded that President Uhuru Kenyatta recently was calling Raila Odinga all sorts of names, many clips of him being abusive,” the Woman Rep argued. 

Shollei argued that as such, Uhuru cannot be a perfect person and a well brought up the child as claimed by Mama Ngina. 

“So to try and say that the President is the perfect person and well brought up a child that doesn’t say anything negative, we just need to look at the way he behaved at the Jubilee meeting,” she said.

The Woman Rep also highlighted the famous Sagana 3 meeting where she claimed that Uhuru chose to attack Deputy President William Ruto instead of sharing the ideologies and vision of the Jubilee party. 

“Instead of unveiling the jubilee vision and decisions of the party, instead he went on an attacking spree on the DP so he is not above reproach when it comes to this issue,” Shollei argued. 

She added;

“Remember in Sagana, he went and spoke in his mother tongue, for someone who is supposed to be the symbol of unity. You as the President have an obligation to respect the seat that Kenyans honoured you in, it was actually a gossip corner in Sagana.”

Speaking during a burial in Gatundu, Mama Ngina fired at Uhuru’s rivals attributing their behaviour to poor upbringing. 

“Depending on how one is raised up, that is the exact same behaviour they will carry with them. If you were not taught to go insulting people, then you will not do it

“I want to tell those who are engaging in insults that we will leave them like that, if at all they were taught insults while growing up, that is up to them,” she said.
