Sikuwa nimelewa! – Uhuru Reacts To Criticism Over His Defence Of His Son After Abortive Government Raid

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has responded to criticism from some Kenyans following his address to the media at his son’s Karen home on Friday.

In a meeting with senior editors on Monday, Kenyatta said he was infuriated by the manner in which the government of President William Ruto was treating his family. He said he went to Karen after receiving a call from his eldest son, Jomo, who informed him that detectives were about to raid his house.

“I went there because of a distress call from my son; I was not drunk. I was extremely hurt,” Kenyatta said.

The former Head of State said his two sons have six guns whose licenses they applied for after he handed over the office. According to Kenyatta, the government did not renew security detail from his two sons, putting them at risk, hence the need to apply for gun licenses.

Kenyatta also said the government is using the issue of guns to divert the attention of Kenyans from the reality of the situation.

Kenyatta also dismissed allegations that he is funding the ongoing demonstrations by Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya Coalition, saying he has nothing to do with the protests. He stated that it is the opinion of Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga to defend the issues raised by Kenyans.

“It is his opinion that he is defending what the people of Kenya wants,” Kenyatta said.

The former President also said he will be available for talks with President Ruto only if he is invited, adding that during his time, he sought advice from his predecessors.

“I have always said that I am ready to talk to anyone, but I will not be the one to initiate the talks,” Kenyatta said.

Kenyatta’s response to the criticism has been met with mixed reactions. Some Kenyans have supported his stance, while others have criticized him for being defensive.

It remains to be seen how the situation will develop in the coming days.
