Thursday June 20, 2019 - Kiambu Township MP, Jude Njomo, has told Kenyans and the political class to cease overanalyzing President Uhuru Kenyatta's recent remarks and attacks against Deputy President William Ruto and members of his Tanga Tanga team last Sunday.
Speaking yesterday, Njomo noted that Uhuru has since apologised for his tirade, and actually did it immediately after making his speech at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani.
He urged Kenyans to now shift their attention from the debate saying that it’s no longer important because Uhuru has since acknowledged that he might have been too harsh.
"Alipomaliza alisema pole, nimeongea kama nimekasirika.”
“He has apologised, hiyo maneno imeisha (the debate is over).”
“He said he is sorry for speaking in anger after the speech," he said.
At the same time, Njomo defended Uhuru's remarks and fury, noting that the Head of State was frustrated as a result of his repeated calls for political calm, calls that have landed on deaf ears.
He noted that the remarks were directed at a single or small group of people, and not the entire Mt Kenya region.
"Labda kuna mtu mmoja ama wawili waliomkasirisha rais kwa hivyo alipoongea Kasarani hakuwa anaambia watu wote wa Mlima Kenya.”
“Maybe one or two people angered the President.”
“Therefore, when he spoke at Kasarani he was not addressing all Mt. Kenya people," he added.
