Elgeyo-Marakwet County Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has responded to President Uhuru Kenyatta after he defended his mother and the former First Lady Mama Ngina from vulgar comments made by Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi and his Emurua Dikirr counterpart Johanna Ng’eno.
The former Senate Majority Leader called for I appeal for sobriety & tolerance in the country as that was the only way the country would go forward.
He wondered what kind of a nation Kenyans would build and what happens to the country’s values and principles if everyone went home to insult their mothers.
He advised that instead of insulting mothers, they should be shown love as an eye for an eye makes the world blind.
“I appeal for sobriety & tolerance in the country. If everyone goes home to insult his/her mother, what kind of a nation shall we build? What will happen to our national values & principles? Let’s show love for our mothers, not insults. An eye for an eye only makes the world blind,” read his statement.
On Thursday 10 September 2020, President Uhuru Kenyatta responded to Sudi and Ng’eno who hit the headlines after attacking Uhuru’s way of leadership while insulting Mama Ngina.
President Uhuru Kenyatta while addressing Ruaka residents said that those insulting his mother should leave him alone and insult their mothers. He added that he was focused on making sure that the country remains united.
He mentioned that he had no issue with leaving the State House once his term was done for at the moment he was focused on the country’s development.
“If you happen to meet those idiots, tell them to go insult their mothers and leave mine alone. I do not want to speak with anger because this country must remain united. I have no problem leaving once my term expires but for now I want to focus on development because that is all that will matter,” he said
