Mama Ngina Kenyatta worried Uhuru may lose the presidential election
The president mother expressed fear that the upcoming August 8 general election would be a tightly contested race which her son may lose.
Speaking in Gatundu south constituency during the burial of a relative namely Paul Muhoho Gathecha on Thursday the president mother expressed fear that the upcoming August 8 general election would be a tightly contested race which her son may lose.
“I am urging all of you, who are registered as voters to stand together to give Uhuru a win. Remember having a voter’s card is not enough, please ensure on August 8 you wake up early in the morning to vote in Uhuru because it won’t be easy”
Mama Ngina added that Uhuru’s only chance lay in the hands of youth, referring to it as a ‘war’ that ‘can only be won if the youth registered as voters and vote in Mr. Kenyatta’.
“The only way we will emerge victorious is we stand together”
The powerful former first lady who many political analysts refer to has the power behind the throne’ and basically call the shots in State house, passionately pleaded with the youth in her native language, Kikuyu to stand with her son and ensure he emerged victorious in the August polls.
“this will ensure that we give Uhuru another five years as president to be able to run this country and take it forward , leaving behind a legacy for this nation that he had dreamt of” she added.
Uhuru has not helped matters, in the recent week he has exploded with anger, insulted other leaders and even told voters in the face to hell with their vote, All which her mother fear may alienate voter even more.
“Wakufikiri mimi ni mtu wa kutishwa watafute mwingine, Kura ni Kura na tutakuja kuomba kama wengine, mutupatie mukose kutupatia aaah kwani munadhani dunia itaisha? “ Uhuru said in Turkana after the Turkana governor accused the National Government taking a bigger pie from the Turkana Oil and denying the arid county much needed oil revenue.
“Mtu akisimama hapa hati aseme uhuru ako na haja na mafuta ya wengine, ashidwe shetani, mshenzi yeye” a Visibly angry Uhuru fired at Josephat Nakok.
The growing popularity of Mombasa governor, Hassan Joho who has fearlessly faced off with Uhuru Kenyatta is also giving sleepless night to Mama Ngina.
"Why does he want to follow me? Am I his wife? Uhuru said after the police dramatically blocked Joho from attending the Mtongwe Ferry relaunch.
Finally while the Jubilee coalition is still leading in popularity with 40 per cent the newly formed National Super Alliance is closing the gap with 32 per cent according to the latest poll survey conducted by Infotrak Research & Consulting.
The study found 28 per cent of those who took part in the research were undecided and therefore may just be swayed by the Opposition and come August 8 vote in favor of Nasa.
