I’ll still defend my family, assures former President

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta, in a past address.

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has for the first time explained why his sons have guns, after a plethora of raids by government operatives.

The former President looked aggrieved by the manner the Ruto-led administration is treating the first family of Kenya’s founding father, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

In the past two weeks, the Kenyatta family has been embroiled in tenterhooks with the government over the guns issue after it was reported that an unknown persons had raided Uhuru’s son, Jomo, and asked him to surrender any firearms that he’d be in possession of.
“My son Jomo has never been interested in guns. He was forced to apply for three after his security was withdrawn,” revealed Mr Kenyatta. He revealed that his plea to the Ruto administration to extend the security of his children for one year to allow them to acclimatise to the new life was rejected.

“I know there is no provision in law to extend the security of my children despite my request. I, therefore, directed them to apply and they followed the due process. They went to the (DCI), Derectorate of Criminal Investigations, and even their fingerprints were taken before being issued with the licences,” he explained.
The former President came out and asked the current President to come out and face him instead of scapegoating on his other family members.

The former President swore that he would still come out and defend his family if he feels that their security is being compromised by the government of the day. He said that it was his responsibility to make sure that his family is safe.
“I would not sit down and watch my family suffer. I was forced to respond. Even if today my children are in trouble, I will still respond,” assured the former President.
